Goofs

At the six-day bike race, Irene stops at the refreshment stand before going to find Sandy. She gets a box of sandwiches and a large cardboard cup of coffee. (We actually see the coffee going into the cup.) When she finds Sandy, however, the coffee has been transubstantiated into soup - according to Irene, anyhow. See more »

A Must For Fans of Joel McCrea
13 June 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

We see a lot of Joel McCrea wearing very little in this entertaining movie. First as a football player in the showers, getting snapped with a towel by buddy William Gargan. McCrea has a very good build, though not that of a football player. He is a little unconvincing as a boxer, too, later on.

Marian Marsh is appealing as the female love interest.

Gargan and McCrea are Ivy league players. Gargan takes the high road but McCrea is lured by promises of fame and wealth. They stop being friends. Can you guess whether they make up again? Joel McCrea is one of my favorite actors in movie history and he does a fine job here. It's a different sort of role from any he played elsewhere and he does well by it.
