Description by OLDIES.com:

Arrogant aristocrat Tommy Van Buren (William Haines) calls himself "America's gift to polo," while his female fans think he's the most gorgeous creature on four legs. All except for plucky Polly (Alice Day), who responds to his amorous advances by running him off the road! And now that Tommy's replaced her father on the squad, Polly has even more reason to loathe the pompous brute - although after an evening's dancing and dalliance, even she yields to the champ's charms. But when Tommy's alcohol-fueled antics get him tossed from the team, he'll have to stop horsing around to win the international series, his beloved pinto Pronto and the heart of young Polly. Join silent era superstar William Haines as he scores one of his greatest goals in this exciting, elegant comedy. It's the smart thing to do.

Product Description:

Having played an egotistical baseball player in SLIDE, KELLY, SLIDE, an egotistical golfer in SPRING FEVER, and an egotistical football star in WEST POINT, can it be any surprise that William Haines was cast as a you-know-what polo player in THE SMART SET' While touring Europe, Tommy van Buren (Haines) is expelled from the U.S. polo team because of his obnoxiousness and lack of team spirit. Since even his sweetheart Polly (Alice Day) has turned her back on him, the headstrong Tommy decides to just sit back and sulk during the championship match. But when Polly is injured in a riding accident, our hero returns to the team just in time to trounce the British polo squad -- and, lest we forget, he also wins the heroine. As usual, critics gnashed their teeth over the sameness of the Bill Haines vehicles, but the public turned out in droves.
