Golf Swing Time
16 July 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

On the sixteenth hole of a golf course, comedian John Berkes (as Johnny) is hit by a golf ball and transported from the sand trap to an Arabian desert. The French Foreign Legion marches by, led by singer Georges Metaxa (as Georges). Ann Barrie (as Ann) is his fiancée. The transported characters were also golfing. Promoted as the star of this short musical, Mr. Metaxa also appeared in the concurrent musical "Swing Time" (1936) starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The title "Sheik to Sheik" spoofs Mr. Astaire's huge #1 hit "Cheek to Cheek" (1935). Also notable in the cast is Richard Rober (nee Rauber).

**** Sheik to Sheik (10/10/36) Roy Mack ~ George Metaxa, John Berkes, Ann Barrie, Richard Rober
