Though well into her twenties, Bebe Daniels effectively passes as a teenager in The Campus Flirt. Daniels plays the spoiled-rotten daughter of a haughty rich woman. After receiving an expensive (if desultory) European education, Daniels is enrolled at an all-American college by her down-to-earth father. Her imperious attitudes win her few friends, but before long she has become a "regular fellow" by joining the girl's track team. Vaudeville comedian El Brendel makes his film debut as a simple-minded Swede, while real-life track star Charlie Paddock appears as himself. The Campus Flirt was one of several Bebe Daniels vehicles wherein the actress went through paces usually reserved for male film stars-without losing any of her charm and femininity.
