Golf was a funny showcase for Larry Semon and supporting player Oliver Hardy
22 June 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This is the first comedy short that's on disc two of the "American Slapstick" DVD collection. It stars Larry Semon as a golfer whose sister is trying to avoid the advances of regular heavy Oliver Hardy. Hardy here, years before his fateful teaming with Stan Laurel, is at his blustering best whether suffering the spill of soup on his face because of Semon's golf ball falling from a hole in the ceiling or getting kicked by a mule or running head first into a stack of boxes. There's also a hilarious fight on Semon's part with a gopher who's not above using a gun! LOL! Some of the scenes involving his black caddy may border on the uncomfortable so one should be glad his sequence doesn't last very long. Also, there's this other golfer who keeps on getting in the way who has his own hilarious bluster. So on that note, I recommend Golf.
