| Despite the salacious content, it's not particularly interesting...or very good.
"Confessions of a Co-Ed" is a terribly dated and dull film. It's also odd because its both highly moralistic AND extremely salacious...a strange Pre-Code combination!

The story is set at a college, yet, like so many films you NEVER see anyone go to class or do much of anything related to school. Instead, much of the students' energies seem to be focused on scoring....though words like pregnancy and the like are never used. Instead, it's all strongly implied.

Patricia (Sylvia Sidney) is a new student and the male students seem gaga about her...especially Hal and Dan. Dan is a bit of a ladies man and seems bent on scoring with Patricia. Hal is secretly a weasel who who do anything to get Patricia. What's next? See the film.

The movie is a confusing morality tale. On one hand it comes off as rather old fashioned and severe....but on the other it seems to espouse the morality you'd see in a post-code film. As a result, it's weird...and not particularly good.

If you do watch the film, look for Bing Crosby in one of his earliest film roles. He plays himself, by the way. Also, the child in the story is played by Dickie Moore...a child actor who played babies and small children in a bazillion films!
