"The Big Four" was the actual name of the United States' polo team that played for the International Cup (also known as the Westchester Cup) against the team from the United Kingdom in matches from 1909 to at least 1927. Tommy, in this film, is said to be modeled after Thomas Hitchcock, Jr. (1900-1944), who was a member of the team that won four consecutive matches in 1921, 1924, 1927, and 1930. See more »
Is your father riding Pronto today?

I am a fan of Haines' ... generally ...
... but this time the movie disappointed and it was due to Haines' performance. His mugging and manic energy were over the top; who would do more than tolerate this person, if even that? Yes, he's handsome and phenomenally talented with polo, we are told per the movie, and I was prepared to enjoy this movie despite its formulaic plot. What I came away with was, of all things, an appreciation of Jack Holt and polo playing! Holt showed his horse mastery well, and since the sport of polo is intriguing and one I enjoy watching without understanding much of it at all, that entertained me. Sorry, Mr. Haines, but your leading lady's attraction to you mystifies me and it never had before in your films. I am rating this 6 stars because of the high production values and, well, polo.
