Should be called The Plastic Movie. Clara Bow and Donald Keith star as college students who meet and fall in love, but she gives him up when she realizes that her fast and loose ways are keeping him from achieving anything as a student or star player on the football team. Naturally, complications ensue, none of them worth your time or interest. This silent film is one of many formula stories that have been made about bubbleheaded American youth for decades, here done with very little flourish or attempt at coherence.
