.
Whirlwind of Youth was taken (as far as possible, apparently) from Soundings, a novel by Hamilton
Gibbs. Impulsive 18-year-old Nancy Hawthorne (Lois Moran) falls hard for Bob Whittaker (Donald
Keith), a rakish "love 'em and leave 'em" type. At first refusing to take Nancy seriously, Whittaker
changes his mind when he realizes that he, too, has fallen truly in love. The film was designed to show
off Paramount's latest crop of young contractees, including Larry Kent, Gareth Hughes and Alyce Mills.
Incidentally, leading lady Lois Moran was reportedly the inspiration for Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott
Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.
