Good short
Strikes and Spares (1934)

*** (out of 4)

Oscar nominated short from MGM has Pete Smith showing us (at the time) the greatest bowler in the country and various trick shots. We also see a bowling newbie and all the mistakes he makes. If you're a fan of bowling then you'll probably get a kick out of this film, which contains several hard laughs and some great trick shots.

Warner has released this short on DVD and you can also finding it playing on Turner Classic Movies quite often. They do a very good job at showing the Pete Smith shorts.
