Pretty Impressive for 1934
4 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Considering athletics, esp. women's basketball in 2005 vs. 1934, it was very interesting and entertaining to see what 1934's take on the subject was. College girls playing hoops in 1934...Marsha Sharp it ain't! This short is certainly worth a look, it is well written and clever, and you'll get a special kick out of the cheerleader squad scene. We've come a long way, Baby.

It is, after all, a short, so no need to pop the popcorn. A quick and entertaining piece, it is difficult to write too much about a film that is less than 20 minutes long without telling the whole story. Suffice it to say that the Brother/Sister duo of Authur Lake (you'll remember him from "Blondie and Dagwood" series of movies) and Florence Lake are delightful. Hearing "Dagwood" do a song and dance number is, in of itself, worth the viewing.
