Trivia

Real college students were recruited for larger scenes, each getting paid $5 a day. While this helped provide appropriate atmosphere for the college setting of this film, the students were hired at a rate that was below the standard $7.50-a-day paid daily to professional extras in Los Angeles.

Very good but also very formulaic
23 December 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When you watch HUDDLE, don't be surprised if it feels like you've seen this film before. That's because in the 1920s and into the 30s, there were many films with similar themes. The formula is like this: A young man who is either selfish or cocky goes to college and makes the football team. However, he does something or the team THINKS he does something and he is an outcast. Later, however, he makes good and does not let everyone know. When they discover this, he is once again loved and praised and the film concludes. Just one of many examples is the William Haines film, BROWN OF HARVARD, but there were many more.

So already, it's obvious that this film isn't all that new or ground-breaking. Now this isn't to say that it's not worth a peek. The film does have a few minor story innovations and the film is still very watchable. However, with Ramon Novarro's rather lackluster performance and strong accent (making it difficult for a hard of hearing person like myself to understand him--thanks to no closed captioning), it's a film that I would not rush out to see unless you love this style of film.

FYI--While this film was set at Yale University, only one very brief scene is of the classroom. And in this one case, the professor decides to cancel class and sends everyone back to the dorms! According to this film, Yale was an incredibly easy school to attend back in 1932!!! No classes--just football and girls!
