Movie Info

This cookie-cutter William Haines vehicle was filmed in part at the Indianapolis Speedway. As usual, Haines plays a fresh young braggart, in this instance a cocky racecar driver. Somewhere along the line, he falls in love with Anita Page, the daughter of an airplane manufacturer. After a dash in the clouds with Page and her pop, Haines comes back to earth, determined to win the Big Race for the sake of his crusty old mentor Ernest Torrence. Although villain John Miljan tries to sabotage Haines' chances, our hero triumphs -- but not until after the usual meal of "humble pie" that all of Haines' characters were required to ingest. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

It is too bad we didn't file the first William Haines review we ever wrote. Then, instead of toiling at the typewriter as we are now, we simply could get the old type, dust it and send it to the composing room.
