Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Much of Fox's Prep and Pep was filmed on location at Culver Military Academy in Indiana. David Rollins plays Cyril Reade, the ne'er-do-well son of a former Culver star athlete. Struggling to live up to his dad's reputation, Cyril fails miserably and is practically razzed out of the academy. He redeems himself when he tames an untameable horse, thereby qualifying for Culver's Black Horse Troop. As a capper, he rescues Dorothy Marsh (Nancy Drexel), the commandant's daughter, from a dormitory fire. From its hokey title to its incredible denouement, Prep and Pep plays like a warmed-over Horatio Alger pulp novel.
