Decent but not a must-see
3 January 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Daphne Pollard plays a character similar to the one she played in THE CAMPUS VAMP--a short and rather manly young lady who has a lot of spunk, but not much else. Carole Lombard, who was also in THE CAMPUS VAMP, plays a star athlete who has very little interest in working hard and is a bit selfish--such as losing a race because she took time in the middle of the race to powder her nose. Despite her being a bit of a jerk, everything, naturally, works out in the end.

This college comedy is very broad in its comedy--not just the powder puff gag, but also featuring a very overweight Madalynne Field. Miss Field is obviously NOT a real athlete and I think the purpose of having her in the film is laugh at a fat girl--not the most noble of story ideas. Still, the short is reasonably interesting despite the quality of the humor and selfishness of Lombard's character. A decent time-passer.
