Very slight film that is still enjoyable
26 September 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Frank McHugh is the coach of Billings University's crew team. However, they lose again and again--mostly because the college president has the nerve to expect his athletes to be scholars and actually have brains. But, with the president's nice looking daughter, McHugh is able to trick several hot crew prospects into joining the team and making them contenders.

This is a relatively low budget film for Warner Brothers, as the film starred the perennial supporting actor McHugh. Otherwise, most of the rest of the cast is relatively unknown, though you might recognize a few stock players such as George E. Stone (as "Biddle"--he was also "Runt" in the Boston Blackie films), Joe Sawyer, Warren Hull and Henry O'Neill--all secondary actors under contract with the studio. Now despite the low budget and the occasional lulls (especially because there are too many musical numbers), the film itself is rather fun and likable. Not especially deep or memorable, but a decent little time passer.

PS--Look close and you'll see a very young Lloyd Bridges in a short little cameo.
