One of four MacArthur-Hecht screen productions, this collegiate comedy unfolds as Taylor returns from Europe to attend her father's school. She soon is involved with radicals who are opposed to the ways of the rich, a class that includes her father. She falls in love with Howard, the

campus' top radical, who has begun a movement to keep a controversial professor from being fired. Taylor's dad is intent on sacking the professor, whose book, Soak the Rich, certainly isn't on the faculty's best-seller list. Eventually the daughter and the radical marry and Dad's actions become

less extreme; the film finishes with a happy finale. One of a few socially conscious films of the period, along with RED SALUTE (1935), FIGHTING YOUTH (1935), and SPRING MADNESS (1938), which popped up when it was hip to be Red.
