Life Begins in College

The freres Ritz first appear as student tailors with a record of seven years in school and seven on the football bench.

Outside of the Ritz Bros Nat Pendleton’s interpretation of the Indian grid star is standout, and Joan Davis, comedienne, serving as his principal foil, especially excellent in that goofy Indian pow-wow song and dance. She’s inclined to grimace a bit too much in reaching for laughs at other times. Tony Martin, spotted as band leader, figures only as the singer of one song
