Dorothy Wilson is a student at an exclusive girl's school. She is a good student and a member of the shell racing crew. She is also pregnant by chemistry student Douglass Montgomery. When he goes to her father, Walter Connolly, asking to marry her without telling him why, Connolly assumes it is for his money. When butch gym instructor Kay Johnson finds out Miss Wilson has been lying to her, but not why, she punishes the girl.
It's based on the 1932 German movie, "Acht Mädels im Boot" and it certainly shows its Germanic roots at the beginning with its young women in uniform, moving in geometric patterns and under strict discipline, all suggesting "Mädchen in Uniform". Although it was a bit slow, I found it a heartfelt and humanistic tale in the end.
Fans of old movies will want to note that this is the first screen appearance of Jean Rogers. Peggy Montgomery, formerly a major child star as 'Baby Peggy' of the silent era, also has a substantial role. Now known as Diana Serra Carey, she is still alive at 100 as I write this.
