The Hat Trick
13 March 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is the third movie in which trick bowler Andy Varipapa appeared and which was narrated by Pete Smith. Pete was a snark-voiced publicity man for MGM who began to narrate sports shorts for Metro and later to produce them, winning a couple of Academy Awards along the way. I almost always enjoy his snide humor.

Mr. Varipapa does some impressive bowling tricks in this one, although I recall seeing some of them in his earlier films for Smith. Apparently he had a set repertoire, including ones in which the balls jumped out of the gutter or knocked down pins in several lanes. If you've ever bowled yourself, you'll admire his skill -- and Smith's showmanship.
