The Forward Pass

Directed by Edward F. Cline
1930    78m    Not Rated
5.1
Marty Reid, the star quarterback at Sanford College, is constantly singled out by the opposition for punishment, and he swears to his pal, Honey Smith, and to Coach Wilson that he will quit the game forever. Ed Kirby, who dislikes Reid, calls him yellow, and Wilson gets Patricia Carlyle, the college vamp, to induce Reid to play. At a sorority dance, where only football players can cut in, Kirby persecutes Reid by dancing with Pat, and as a result Reid does apply to play in the game. When he learns of her trickery, however, Reid fumbles in the game, and both he and Kirby are withdrawn and start a fight in the locker room. Convinced that Reid is no coward, Kirby joins him and they win the game.
