Girls Demand Excitement is a 1931 American pre-Code film starring Virginia Cherrill, John Wayne, and Marguerite Churchill. Wayne and Churchill had starred in the widescreen Western epic The Big Trail the previous year. The movie was written by Harlan Thompson and directed by Seymour Felix. Wayne stated this film was the worst movie he ever appeared in. A 35mm nitrate work print of this film is stored in the UCLA Film and Television Archive.


Peter Brooks is a hard-working but struggling college boy who resents girls being allowed to attend college. A wealthy young spoiled socialite named Joan Madison changes his mind when she uses her feminine wiles to entrap him. Later in the film, Brooks's men's basketball team goes up against the college's all-girl team.
