Picture marks the first release of Dorothy Wilson, the stenographer in the Radio coast studio offices who was skyrocketed from her typewriter into semi-stardom.

Wilson turns out to be a highly interesting young type, suggesting in appearance a flapper Norma Shearer. The part of a college co-ed does not call for any histrionic fireworks, but the newcomer reveals a remarkable aptitude for natural acting.

Story is a sexy tale [based on the play Cross Roads by Martin Flavin, adapted by H. N. Swanson], dealing in often sprightly manner with the adolescent amours of a co-ed campus and its environs, this angle being insidiously exploited under cover of being a sympathetic study of the love problems of the young.

Cast is made up of young people, with just the leavening in the professor character, deftly handled as usual by John Halliday. Central male characters are played by Richard Cromwell, an excellent choice as the young hhero, and Eric Linden, once more a philandering student high-flyer.
