Storyline

The story of Willie Hoppe, world-champion billiard player for more than fifty years, even into his seventies. Commentator Bill Stern describes Hoppe's abilities as the camera catches the match played at the New York Athletic Club, which Hoppe easily wins while playing against a much-younger opponent. The reel concludes with Hoppe demonstrating some of the tricks he can perform with a pool cue and a ball. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
