Ramon Novarro stars in Huddle the story of a steel worker from Gary, Indiana who
gets a scholarship from the company because he's considered a bright kid. Novarro was 33 at the time he made Huddle and certainly looked his age. Not
fitting in at first, he discovers football.
Ramon Novarro is not the first choice of actor to play a jock, But I think MGM
padded him up somewhat to make a plausible if not convincing. Ralph Graves
does well as the Yale football coach.
As do John Arledge and Frank Albertson as Novarro's roommates, Martha Sleeper as the college vamp, and Madge Evans as the rich girl he aspires to.
I agree with the other reviewer though a lot of college set films rarely show much academics. The Paper Chase is a glorious exception there, it's all about
academics. One thing though, they sing a lot at Yale. Just like the Welsh coal miners in How Green Was My Valley.
