Nice Short

Sport Slants (1931)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another decent entry in Ted Husing's sports short, which takes a look at various sports and explains them to people who might not have ever seen them. In this episode we take a look at the rules of wrestling, Lester Patrick explains hockey, gymnasts Adelaide Meyers and Al Jochim go over various flips and we see the St. Johns men's basketball team at practice. I'm really not sure if people in 1931 didn't know about these sports of if the studio was just pumping out any short that they could. Either way, when viewing this thing today there's some nice historical value to them but it's doubtful that the education here is going to work for anyone. It was funny hearing St. Johns talk about as being one of the greatest basketball schools in the country and I'm sure a few jokes could be made at the "serious" sport of wrestling and its rules. It was interesting seeing someone like Patrick as well as getting to see how hockey was played and what it looked like back in the day. I'm sure most will be turned off by this short so it's mainly going to appeal to sports fans.
