Pete Smith ...
Narrator (voice)


We visit a rodeo somewhere in the western United States. We watch professional riders in three events: bronco busting, bull-dogging, and bull riding. We see some of the cowboys perform in slow motion and one in reverse motion. Pete Smith, the narrator who sounds like a city boy as he explains it's pronounced "roe-DAY-o," provides a combination of information, comic commentary, and corny puns. Overriding all is the difficulty of this sport. Written by <>

Yet another reason I hate the Pete Smith films.
27 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the earliest films narrated by Pete Smith--a guy who made TONS of shorts for MGM over several decades. I have never understood why, however. After all, MGM was the top studio on the planet--you'd think they could have done a lot better than these limp films.

This installment was the only film directed by Charles Dorian. It features lots of footage of a rodeo--and much of it is in slow motion. During all this, as usual, Smith drones on and on and makes lots of supposedly droll comments--most of which were not funny or were slightly offensive. Not only is it bad, but the film also shows a lot of animals being tormented. So why would you want to watch it? I have no idea.
