Watch College - Alternative Versions.
This film reminded me a lot of Harold Lloyd's "The Freshman," in which
Harold goes out for sports in college to impress a girl - same story -
and made two years earlier. I am partial to Lloyd's version but I
enjoyed this, too.
Keaton's version starts off with the high school graduation ceremony.
"Ronald" (Keaton), the scholar of the class, gives a speech denouncing
athletics as a total waste of time and promoting being a bookworm over
anything else. This speech is so offensive to the crowd that everyone
leaves but Keaton's mom, who applauds. By the way, all the high school
graduates look between 25-35 years of age. These are the oldest-looking
high school seniors in history!!
Anyway, a girl Buster is trying to impress "Mary Haynes" (Anne
Cornwall), was among those not impressed with his snobby "scholar"
speech. She'd rather have an athletic man. So, upon entering college,
"Ronald" tries a variety of sports, to gain the approval of the girl.
(Does this theme sound familiar, not just in the Lloyd film but so many
of Keaton's other films?)
He attempts to play baseball but is so clueless he puts on all the
catcher's equipment to play third base. Suffice to say, after a number
of plays ensue, it's more than evident that "Ronald" is a little bit
out of his element! Next, he goes out for track, but gets discouraged
when two little kids speed by him on the track. Throwing the discus and
javelin are not good ideas, either. His high-jumping routine is very
funny. He isn't bad in the hurdles, however. Obviously, pole vaulting
doesn't work and the hammer throw almost gets his teammates killed, so
he's told to leave.
He gets a call from the Dean's office. The Dean, who liked him from the
start because he preferred studies over sports, is distressed because
Buster's grades are bad. Buster explains his problems and the Dean
(played by the always-funny Snitz Edwards) sympathizes because, being a
wimpy little guy, he same problem years ago with a woman he liked. So,
as a favor, Dean Edwards orders the rowing coach to install Buster as
the coxswain of the team. The coach and the crew don't want this, as
"Little Lord Fauntleroy" or "Mama's Boy" and other names he's called,
has a reputation already at college as an athletic loser. They try to
sabotage his attempt at being part of their crew, but he turns the
tables. The funniest scene is when the new coxswain literally becomes
the boat's rudder.
The neatest part of the film is the ending, which is usually the case
in silent comedies. Suffice to say that Buster puts all of his athletic
talents, which were not effective on the sports fields, to good use to
get the girl. It's a memorable ending.
