This was one of Charles Butterworth's few leading roles. Though Jimmy Durante was top-billed, I believe, from watching it recently, Butterworth was on screen more in a more pivotal role. He was amusing to watch due to his mild manner and voice, which reminded me of Wilfred Hyde-White. The plot concerns a college rowing team on an ocean voyage. Butterworth is a professor sent to chaperone. Durante is their coach. The film is of interest because Betty Grable has an early appearance. I give it 7 stars in consideration of it's age, compared to, say, a 9-star W.C. Fields comedy or Astaire-Rogers musical. It's rare to find anything with Butterworth nowadays.
