J. Farrell MacDonald Learns to Drive
29 September 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This is "No. 9" in the Vitaphone series of "How I Play Golf" shorts featuring professional advice from Bobby Jones.

"The Driver" finds grouchy J. Farrell MacDonald on the golf course, bragging to his golfing buddies about his supposed good drive, which turns out to be very bad. After some ribbing, "Mac" walks off to take a nap. While reading a magazine article about Mr. Jones, Mr. MacDonald's dreamily receives some golfing advice from his imaginary pal "Bob". Upon awakening, MacDonald's game improves. Accomplished actors Lucien Littlefield ("Play it off of your right foot, like I do."), Conway Tearle ("Have you ever tried standing on the ball?"), and David Torrence (Ernest's older brother), join MacDonald in appearing as themselves.

***** The Driver (1931) George Marshall ~ Bobby Jones, J. Farrell MacDonald, Conway Tearle, Lucien Littlefield
