Storyline

Jane Wyman and Ronald Reagan are commiserating about their respective golf games and what they perhaps are doing wrong. Ronny hopes to get some pointers from the world record holder for the longest drive, Jimmy Thomson, who is more than happy to show Ronny some of the basics in correcting both his hook and his slice, how to hit out of the rough and a sand trap properly, and how to do a short chip shot. Meanwhile, Jane gets some lessons of her own from Jack Redmond, who shows her how to impress Ronny by doing some trick maneuvers. Written by Huggo

Mr. & Mrs. Reagan
18 March 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

When he wasn't busy making the world safe for democracy by making training films during the Second World War, Reagan took the time out to appear in this movie with then-wife Jane Wyman, each playing themselves, in which they get impromptu golf lessons from a couple of golf experts: he gets his lesson from Jimmy Thomson, 'the World's Longest Driver' who drones on and on.... this looks like a color version of the series that George Marshall directed of Bobby Jones ten years before, but not so amusing. Jane gets her lesson from Jack Redmond, who is a bit of a tummeler, one of the pratfall comedians who used to inhabit the Catskills, making some amusing jokes along the way.

In sum, the effect is not particularly interesting, although golfers might care.
