Satirical Short Comedy With a Good Performance By Carole Lombard
28 September 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Run, Girl, Run" is a satirical short comedy featuring Carole Lombard as the star of a women's college track team, whose coach is desperately trying to keep the women's minds on a big meet. Norma (Lombard) and her coach are quite a contrast, and have an interesting battle of wills. It's anything but subtle, and it might stretch things a bit a couple of times, but it has several funny gags, and Lombard (billed as 'Carol', without the 'e') gives a good performance.
