While in pre-production for this film, Cecil B. DeMille was also planning a subsequent epic film called "The End of the World", which was inspired in part by the novel "When Worlds Collide" by Philip Wylie and Edwin Balmer, and by the film End of the World (1931). DeMille went so far as to purchase the rights to both subjects ("When Worlds Collide" was bought for $7,500). Ultimately the script was never even written and the project was discarded. "When Worlds Collide" was eventually made into a film, When Worlds Collide (1951), with DeMille as an uncredited Executive Producer. See more »
Great performance from Charles Bickford, and a cameo appearance by John Carradine at the beginning of the film with a moustache. Apart from seeing how student power can make things work, I didn't think much of the characters. It doesn't mean that the acting wasn't any good, it's just that the writing of the characters lacked substance. Because Bickford would go on to appear in 'Tarzan's New York Adventure' and 'Reap the Wild Wind' in the same year, this film is significant because Cecil B. DeMille could draw out a performance from Bickford that would set him on the road to antagonistic characters. This film isn't story led, it is performance led. You learn nothing from the story, but it is a good calling card for Bickford and indeed Carradine.
