Amusing Little Programmer
2 April 2013 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Considering it's a Monogram production, the results are generally better than expected. For some reason college-based musical comedies were popular about this time (1933). The storyline is unexceptional, the usual romantic mix-ups that furnish a few laughs; along with a dollop of sports competition that furnishes a dash of suspense. What's really eye-catching, however, is the cast. Yes, it is a young, handsome, muscular Lon (Creighton) Chaney Jr. as one of the swains, and looking nothing like the dissipated alcoholic of later years. After seeing the promise here, its doubly unfortunate his career went on the downslide it did.

Also, there's only a slightly addled Sterling Holloway playing it fairly straight, for a change; and Arthur Lake showing a nicely shaded comedic side that probably helped him get the Dagwood role in the long-running Blondie series. But who is Edward Nugent. Judging from his many credits in the 1930's, he nevertheless quit the business early. Whatever the case, he makes a perfectly handsome swell-head, who can be either obnoxious or charming. Too bad IMDb doesn't give us more of his bio. Anyway, the movie's not a bad little programmer given its lowly Monogram pedigree.
