Another boring entry in RKO's Sportscope series, which takes a look at a wide range of lesser known sports. This one here takes a look at the Junior Canadian Lancers and one six-year-old girl who wants to join them. The only problem is that you've got to be eight so the girl is two years shy of that so we see what "other" job she is given. I'm sure the lancers would make for an interesting documentary but sadly this here isn't it. I've seen at least a dozen of these Sportscope shorts and for the life of me I've never understood how they could take something possibly interesting and drain it of any sort of entertainment. We really don't learn anything about lancers other than the age requirements and the fact that you've got to ride a horse. The rest of the film just seems to drag on without any purpose other than to add up to eight-minutes so that the studio can send it to theaters.
