Several years before he portrayed Knute Rockne, Pat O'Brien played an unscrupulous college football coach in this melodrama that is peppered with comedic moments. Determined to win at all costs, he gives players stipends, manipulates the media, and profits from his team. But when a star player Dick Powell discovers the truth about his mentor, the fate of the entire squad hangs in the balance. With Ann Dvorak and, in a bit part, John Wayne. AKA: "Football Coach." 75 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
