NOT A GREAT MOVIE. A FEW LAUGHS. KITSCH SENTIMENTALITY.
17 May 2019 | by raymarsh-51084See all my reviews

This was OK, but not a great movie. There were a few laughs. Before I actually watched it, I'd read that it was a "precode gay classic", but that is not at all accurate. It is really the trajectories of two freshman at college. One losing his innocence and finding his burgeoning manhood, and another man full of confidence discovering his vulnerability and finding redemption. A minor 1930 comedy / drama.
