W.C. Fields and Warner Oland out golfing with their buddy, Bobby Jones!
5 December 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

During the 1930s, the Vitaphone unit of Warner Brothers made a variety of how-to videos starring Bobby Jones, the legendary golfer of the day. Considering that is considered one of the greatest golfers, even today, the studio helped give golfers and historians some amazing footage of the guy. Plus, golfers will appreciate how the films are so educational and well made...folks today could still benefit from this instruction.

If you are not a golfer, and I definitely am not, then the films still hold some interest--particularly this one since it also features Warner Oland (Charlie Chan) as a member of Jones' golf party and W.C. Fields as himself--frustrated and more than willing to take instructions from Jones on how to improve his stroke. Because of this, it's still quite watchable today and very well made.

By the way, it is interesting that Fields and Oland were in the film as Fields was on contract with Paramount and Oland with Fox at the time.
