--- "Louise Brooks is utterly adorable as Carol Fleming. She is exactly the type college boys swoon over. She displays a sincerity in her work that has been absent from her previous roles.

--- "The picture gives us an excellent opportunity to see how young and pretty and self-possessed Louise Brooks is as the fresh-girl, so to speak, who doesn't quite approve of fresh young men. We see numerous close-ups of her and duly admire her cute black bob and her pleasant facial expressions." - Los Angeles, California newspaper

--- "Few critics of the rolled stockings fad have as keen an eye for defects as the motion picture camera, reports Richard Rosson, director. Rosson jumped enthusiastically into the production of a collegiate film featuring rolled stockings in action and title. Then he discovered that very few women can roll their stockings well enough to photograph The camera seemed a perfect fiend for picking up wrinkles and shadows not ordinarily noticed by the eye. It was necessary to organize a daily 'roll call' at which Louise Brooks and the other girls in the cast lined their stockings up for inspection before any filmwas risked on them." - instance of syndicated column (Associated Press) in Washington D.C. newspaper
