a5c7b9f00b John Kent (Monte Blue&#39;) wins the Olympic decathlon but is disqualified on a charge of professionalism. William Stevens (<a href=">Kenneth Harlan), the second-place finisher, is awarded the title and trophies. Six years later Kent is running a moving truck for a living and training his young son Johnny (<a href=">Bruce Bennett) to become an athlete. Chance brings about a meeting between Ken and Stevens, now a prosperous business man, with a little daughter, Joan (<a href=">Joan Fontaine), who makes friends with young Johnny. As the years pass, the grown-up Johnny has developed to where he stands a chance of becoming an Olympic athlete and is in love with Joan. Mr. Stevens also wants to see Johnny succeed, and is annoyed that his attention to Joan may interfere with his training. Rich girl Patricia Stanley (<a href=">Suzanne Kaaren) is also interested in Johnny, a proceeding which suits wealthy young athlete Duke Hale (<a href=">Reed Howes), who is Johnny&#39;s main rival in sports and for Joan. Stevens, in an effort to repay the elder Kent for the wrong done him in stripping him of his rightful Olympic title, makes Johnny a member of the athletic club that sponsors the preliminary track-and-field events leading to the choosing of the American team for the Olympic Games. Johnny wins first place in the initial trials and is carried away by the flattery of the social set, which leads to a quarrel and separation from his father. At a party given by Patricia, Johnny drinks heavily, and Joan, feeling she is partly to blame for Johnny breaking his training, tells him she is through if him, hoping to bring him to his senses.
This is more of a curiosity for the presence of a future Oscar winning star in her first lead, although one that came from poverty row rather than one of the majors. Joan Fontaine moved up the ladder to stardom quickly, although her first few films are mostly forgotten bottom of double bills and supporting parts in a few now classic A films. For this one, she&#39;s at one of the fly by night studios that probably made a few bucks but little impression. She&#39;s a rich man&#39;s daughter who falls in love with an athlete in training (Bruce Bennett, &quot;Mildred Pierce&quot;), and at her father&#39;s wishes, breaks off with him so he can go all the way and get the medals and trophies his own father (Monte Blue) didn&#39;t because an error had Fontaine&#39;s father getting them instead. <br/><br/>This is highlighted by some light hearted moments where Bennett plays around with the honking Joan while she tries to pass his truck and she pulls him out of a cliff side ditch, driving off with him still roped to her car. Bennett is quite the athletic specimen here: running, jumping and hurling discus with ease. He&#39;s a far cry from the character actor of just 8 years later who walked out on Joan Crawford, her two spoiled daughters, laundry and pies. This is quite interesting for a z grade programmer that didn&#39;t give its future huge star much attention and didn&#39;t get much notice even after.
Real life athelete Herman Brix stars as an Olympic hopeful, rigorously trained by his father (silent star Monte Blue). They train at a camp run by former silent star Kenneth Harlan, who has a marvelously modern daughter (very young Joan Fontaine) who can scarcely contain her attraction to the fit Mr. Brix. Enter two carloads of rich young things, and the athelete&#39;s life becomes complic
