The members of the local university's trust make a wager that anyone can succeed in college if just given the chance. They enlist Slip Mahoney and his gang to prove the theory by attending the university. While the boys do not become academic scholars, Sach invents a "vitamin" drink that makes him invincible. They all join the football team and Sach becomes the star player, leading them to the big championship game. A local gambler, seeing an opportunity to make some money, kidnaps Sach to prevent him from playing. Slip and the rest of the gang rescue Sach and return him to the game. Sach is out of "vitamins," so Slip plans a ruse on the playing field that distracts the other team and allows him to score the winning touchdown. Afterward, Sach concocts a new formula that allows him to fly.

Remaining cast


This is the first of two appearances by Gil Stratton, Jr. as a member of the gang, replacing William Benedict. Stratton was reluctant to join the series (his agent accepted the job for the money), and he tried to keep himself as inconspicuous as possible in the films; he often gave his dialogue to Leo Gorcey or Huntz Hall.[1]

Director William Beaudine captured the college-campus and football elements of Hold That Line so well that Monogram hired him to film a more elaborate gridiron picture, The Rose Bowl Story, that same season.

Home media

Warner Archives released the film on made-to-order DVD in the United States as part of "The Bowery Boys, Volume Two" on April 9, 2013.
