Any silent movie fan has probably seen some of the college pictures from the 1920s. Generally speaking, fast college kids corrupt the incoming freshman with fast living, fast cars, and fast women. And of course, as the kids cruise around in their open roadsters, they're all wearing raccoon coats. Anyway, one of the freshman is usually a farm kid, working his way through college, and thanks to his down home American values, he turns away from fast living just before things go to hell. I know, it sounds pretty stupid, but some of those movies are really good.
