Nice job by Pat O'Brien

This is a fairly predictable story about a mercenary college football coach who will jump at the best offer. Interesting that in the 1930's many of the issues surrounding collegiate sports are similar to what exists today. Pat O'Brien did his usual nice job, this time as a fast talking, somewhat unscrupulous coach. Just 75 minutes long and kept my interest.
