The Best in the Series

How I Play Golf, by Bobby Jones #10: Trouble Shots (1931)

*** (out of 4)

This here is probably the best film in the series as Bobby Jones gets to hit the course with three legends. Joe E. Brown and Edward G. Robinson are on the course when they make a bet. It seems Brown feels that he can beat Jones in a round of golf. The only catch is that Jones has to use the ball after Brown hits one of his bad shots. This is where the lesson comes into play as Jones teaches viewers out to get out of some trouble shots including the ball in a creek, the ball behind a tree and the ball in tall grass. I've seen all of the Bobby Jones shorts from his two series at Warner and I don't think there's any doubt that this one here is the best. The story here is actually a very good one and I really wished they had made this one a two-reeler because it was that much fun. Brown appears to be having a great time throwing his brand of humor off the more dry Jones but the golf pro manages to have a few good comebacks as well. Robinson and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. pretty much just take a backseat but it's still a blast seeing them here.
