It can be said with some certainty that Paramount's Touchdown, Army is not a baseball picture. Taking time out from his "Bulldog Drummond" series, John Howard stars as Brandon Culpepper, a self-admiring West Point football hero. A true Southerner, Culpepper is mercilessly heckled by his teammates and his gridiron opponents. The taunting reaches a fever pitch when our hero pulls a "Roy Riegels", running the wrong way during a crucial game and nearly scoring a touchdown for the opposition. Culpepper is rescued from making a fool of himself by Jimmy Howell (Robert Cummings), his rival for the affections of pretty Toni Denby (Mary Carlisle). Judging by Touchdown, Army the median age of the West Point senior class is 35.
