| Wonderful historical footage buried inside a pretty bad movie
The movie is lame, and the acting is strictly amateur. However, the stock footage of Stanford is wonderful, and the actual game footage is excellent, and for fans of old football, priceless.

There are some interesting musical numbers which are actually not that bad, in their own way.

It is also amusing to briefly see Lloyd Bridges in one of his first screen appearances. He has bit parts in at least two scenes. He had a long career, and fathered two well-known actors, Jeff & Beau.

If I were reviewing the movie as an entertainment vehicle, I'd give it a three-star rating, but because of the Stanford shots and actual football scenes, I rate it higher.

BTW, the "Stanford Stadium" shots are actually the Rose Bowl, I think.


Release Date:

8 October 1942
