College student Michael Harvey (Richard Cromwell) and his sweetheart (Dorothy Wilson) plan to marry in two years, after Michael graduates. But two years is a long time for an ardent young man, and he succumbs to the charms of Dora (Arline Judge), a pert waitress. Dora's father intervenes, demanding that Michael make an honest woman of his underage daughter or face prison. Has Michael lost his chance of happiness with the woman he truly loves?
Dorothy Wilson, who'd previously been a stenographer at RKO Radio studios, plays the lead in RKO's AGE OF CONSENT. Wilson and co-star Richard Cromwell play a couple of green-as-grass college coeds, whose puppy love blossoms into genuine romance. But with love comes responsibilities, and soon it looks as though they will have to give up their education if they want to make a go of their relationship. Director Gregory La Cava's fondness for on-set improvisation results in a number of endearingly spontaneous moments from the talented young cast. It was also refreshing to see a 1932 movie in which college life was depicted with a semblance of reality, and not as an endless series of frat parties and football games. Watch for 16-year-old Betty Grable in an uncredited bit role. AGE OF CONSENT is based on CROSS ROADS, a stage play by onetime College Humor editor Martin Flavin.
