An early Hollywood talkie (1932) directed by the neglected Dudley Murphy, the early experimentalist who worked with Fernand Leger (Ballet mechanique), Duke Ellington (Black and Tan), Bessie Smith (St. Louis Blues), and Paul Robeson (The Emperor Jones). Joel McCrea and William Gargan star as college chums. The School of the Art Institute’s Ronald Gregg will give a lecture that presents this as a homoerotic picture with gay subtexts despite its conventional heterosexual characters and themes.
