Crew Racing (1935)

** (out of 4)

This Pete Smith short from MGM takes a look at the rowing team from the University of California. We learn early that they're considered the best in the country and then we jump to the Freshman class. We see their first day on the job, getting coached by Ky Ebright and see the day to day training, which eventually leads up to their race against the varsity. CREW RACING really isn't a very entertaining movie. I think it's mainly going to appeal to those who enjoy crew racing or have taken part in it themselves. The reason I say this is that the sport simply isn't all that entertaining to begin with and this short really doesn't make one any more interesting in how everything is done. I think those into crew racing will also enjoy seeing a legend like Ebright and I'm sure they'll enjoy seeing how things were done back in the day but all others should probably stay clear. Even Smith isn't what you'd expect if you're familiar with his films because he doesn't crack any jokes, which is something most people will be expecting.
