Lee Sheridan, a young American comes to study at Oxford University, but is instantly disliked by the other students, because of his brash and big-headed attitude. After several scrapes with the college professors, and the wife of the local book seller, he becomes a hero when he joins the rowing club, and coxes the boat crew to beat Cambridge, in the annual boat race.

Did You Know?
In a scene shortly after arriving at Oxford, Sheridan meets with his assigned tutor, who asks him, "What are you reading?" by which he means what is your field of study. Sheridan, confused, replies, "Well, I am reading 'Gone With The Wind', but I am only halfway through it." Vivien Leigh
, also in this movie, would of course portray Scarlett in Gone with the Wind
(1939) which was released the year after this movie. Reportedly, it was known as early as 1937 from a David O. Selznick
memo that Leigh had secured the role. See more
