Nice Cinematography
Water Trix (1949)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Oscar-nominated short from Pete Smith has cinematographer (and director) Charles T. Trego shooting water skiing champ Preston Peterson as he performs various dangerous stunts. This short didn't keep me overly entertained even though there's no doubt that the stunts being done are impressive. Even though the stunts are obviously very dangerous I thought the most interesting aspect here was the actual cinematography, which was very impressive. I looked up Trego's credits on the IMDb and noticed that he didn't have too much work as a director and even fewer jobs as a cinematographer, which surprised me. As for Peterson, I had never heard of him but seeing his work here makes it easy to understand why he was a champion.
