Film star Ted Crosley, fed up with movie life, quits pictures to enroll in Midland College, much to the horror of his manager Sam Lewis and his stooge-friend Willie Gumbatz. Ted wishes to enroll in school under an assumed name but Sam, hoping to nip his school plans in the bud, tips off the press and school. En route, Ted has met and fallen in love with Jean Worthington, daughter of Dean Worthington who is counting on Ted's enrollment to save his job. Ted, as the hero of many college and football movies, is given a royal welcome when he arrives. In an effort to make the Midland football team a bigger draw and pay off the stadium debt, Ted is put on the varsity team, where, his exploits don't match those he had on screen, and he is actually a liability. He soon incurs the enmity of Biff Gordon, the school's football hero and Ted's rival for Jean. Biff sets Ted up with a fake fraternity initiation, wherein Ted passes on the tin fraternity ring, taken from a candy box, to Jean. ...Written by

The Three Stooges have a couple of funny moments in Start Cheering
This is another of those rare Three Stooges-here being Moe, Larry, and Curly-feature films before their starring roles in the '60s in which they appear in support of the main cast. The actual stars here being Charles Starrett-a Columbia cowboy in his only time away from a western-and Joan Perry-who would eventually marry studio head Harry Cohn and remain so until his death in 1958. Also, Jimmy Durante and Walter Connolly are the second bananas here. The Stooges have a couple of funny scenes: one on the football field and another at a girls' dorm. In the last sequence, Larry noticeably has his usually wildly hanging curly hair slicked back while wearing a fire hat, probably because he doesn't like his curls tangled up in it! Singer Gertrude Niesen and tap dancer Hal LeRoy also provide some entertaining musical moments as well as Durante when doing his novelty numbers. There's also a weird turn by a Chaz Chase. Watch him in it and you'll understand what I mean. I very much enjoyed this one so on that note, I recommend Start Cheering for fans of the Stooges and Durante.
