It is 1930 and young boys go to college to play football and young girls. Meanwhile, young girls go to college in search of young boys to play with. Ahhhh, the joys of youth.

The first motion picture with sound premiered in the fall of 1927. In 1929 there were many more motion pictures with sound, but silent movies still dominated. Paramount Vice President Jesse Lasky said that while talking pictures will have their place in the movie world, silent motion pictures will remain the backbone of motion picture entertainment. The head of Universal Pictures, Carl Laemmle, said that the silent picture technique is too well established to permit a variation of its form.

Unfortunately, neither of those wise men understood what talking pictures meant to working-class Americans. Silent motion picture theaters were often as opulent as the grand opera halls of the world. There was a reason for this.

America was built on the backs of hard-working immigrants from around the world, and for many of these workers, English was not their native language. They could understand enough of the spoken word to be able to work and live in their new home, but few could read sophisticated English words. Silent films relished in the use of written title cards to explain the story, often with cute but complex wordplay. Only the wealthy Americans with good English language skills could enjoy motion pictures.

When sound was added to motion pictures, suddenly the potential audience grew amazingly. Now all the hard-working immigrants could pay for and watch amazing entertainment that they could understand and enjoy. The difference in movie studio income between silent and sound movies could not be denied, and by 1930, when this movie premiered, the silent movie was dead. There was not one silent movie produced in Hollywood after 1929.

This romantic comedy is about four new freshman college students. Vaudeville comedian Benny Rubin is Benny Krantz, a shy Jewish boy. Marjorie Kane is Doris Hill, a pre-code aggressively sexy girl who will chase shy Benny. Rex Lease, in a rare non-cowboy roll, is a freshman football player who is entranced with the beauty of sophisticated Mary Norris, played by Marceline Day. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
