Hailed as one of the best college pictures of the silent era, this entertaining film depicts college life as seen through the eyes of a typical college freshman. Tom Brown has average grades, above average success with the campus coeds and dreams of being a star on the varsity football team. In spite of initial defeat and a sports injury, Brown finally emerges as a hero in the biggest game of the year--Harvard vs. Yale. Many of the sports scenes, including an after-game celebration on the field, were taken from footage shot at a real Harvard University football game. John Wayne fans, take note: this film is widely regarded to be his first film appearance as an un-billed extra portraying a football player.
