Innovative early sound film with great underwater photography.
22 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

CRYSTAL CHAMPIONS is an 11 minute Grantland Rice Sportlight S-3 (in sound) featuring swimming champions JOHNNY WEISSMULLER (of Tarzan fame); Martha Norelius (15 World Records); Newton Perry (Turtle Catching Champ); and diving champions Helen Meany + Pete Desjardins.

One reviewer raved about Ernest Corts' underwater photography at Silver Springs, Florida as well as the creative use of sound having a narrator (Grantland Rice uncredited).

Frank Black and his Orchestra provide the music with sound synchronized by RCA Photophone on this May 1929 Pathe - Van Beuren release directed by Jack Eaton.

This innovative sound short with fantastic RARE early footage on these great champions make this a must see.
