How to Break 90 #3: Hip Action (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

William B. Davidson, O.B. Keller and Warner Oland are out golfing with Bobby Jones but they don't realize that W.C. Field is slowly stalking around watching them. When the men finally sit down Jones has Field's show him his shot, which has the wrong hip action. This is when Jones shows the proper way to swing your hips so that you can get a good strike on the ball. Overall this third entry is a minor step down in terms of entertainment but fans of the golfer or the stars will still want to check it out. Field, being called Bill here, has a couple good moments but overall I'd say they didn't use him as good as they could have. Keller, Davidson and Oland pretty much do nothing and have very little actual dialogue. Those interested in hearing from Jones will be happy to know that his teachings are pretty much the main focus here. The slow motion shots of him explaining the proper way to golf will certainly be of interest to those wanting to know his skill.
