A reason, maybe the reason, to watch Hold That Co-Ed, is Barrymore. His hair askew and face bandaged (is that explained?), Jack gives way to abandon of the corrupt, but comic, sovereign he plays, his lines spat at cue cards held offscreen. The collapsed profile could still muster magic on good days, and was not so prideful as to burlesque at less than full-tilt as here. To direction of that was lent George Marshall, ideally suited to Hold That Co-Ed and farcing done broad.
