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

Shoot Yourself Some Golf (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Charming short from Warner has Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman hanging out at the golf course and growing frustrated by their lack of quality. Soon Reagan goes to get some tips from Jimmy Thompson, the record holder for the longest drive, while Wyman heads over to Jack Redmond who just happens to be the best trick golfer. This short certainly isn't going to change your life but I think film buffs should enjoy it as well as those interested in seeing these old golfer. Much like Warner's Bobby Jones series, this one here is basically just giving people some golf tips so I'm sure fans of the sport will enjoy getting to see both Thompson and Redmond. The camera-work certainly doesn't compare to anything that we have today but we get some slow motion shots of the golf clubs doing their things. Another major benefit is that this was shot in Technicolor and this really brings the course to life as well as other things including Wyman's lipstick. At just 11-minutes there's certainly nothing too special here but the short remained entertaining.
