Arizona (1931 film)

Arizona is a 1931 American pre-Code drama film directed by George B. Seitz and starring Laura La Plante, John Wayne and June Clyde. It is one of several films based on Augustus Thomas's 1899 play of the same name.[1] Filmed as "Arizona", the movie's makers applied to the New York State Censor Board for a new title, "Men Are Like That", and the film was reviewed under that title in New York and elsewhere.

While at West Point, Bob Denton rebuffs Evelyn Palmer, who shows up later as the wife of his commanding officer in Arizona. Denton gets involved in a romantic relationship with Evelyn's younger sister. To keep him from marrying her sister, Evelyn falsely accuses Denton of sexually harassing her, which leads to his being kicked out of the academy. She later learns that he and her sister were already secretly married, however, which leads her to admit her lie about him to her husband, who then reinstates the framed Denton.
