Charles Bickford and John Carradine
14 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

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.
