  • Short Summary

    Comedy golf routine by Clapham and Dwyer - slapstick stuff.

  • Description

    Clapham and Dwyer - the famous radio stars - take the air and have a spot of golf. One of the pair carries a large shopping bag with his golf clubs inside. He wears a cricket shin pad on his leg.

    "Clapham wasn't quite sure whether he was invited to tennis, cricket, mining, engineering - or just golf - (and Cissie wasn't there to tell him!)" Clapham takes various items out of his bag - a telescope, a melon (?) a big caveman club and eventually a golf club. He fools around. Eventually he takes a shot and swings right around without hitting the ball. Silly stuff ensues. Eventually he kicks the golf ball. The two comedians walk along, Clapham falls over in a pile of leaves. His friend helps him up. "This is all through you letting Cissie stay in bed in the morning." reads an intertitle. Clapham uses a tape measure to work out the distance between his ball and the hole. He takes a shot.

    Through a camera trick - stop frame animation presumably - the ball goes round and round in circles. His companion looks surprised. Clapham does some gurning. Dwyer pots a ball. Dwyer uses the hole flag pole like a snooker cue and attempts to pot the golf ball. The two hold pint glasses of beer and chink them, toasting each other. They drink their pints.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 564.

    Safety print exists - show print. Probably on "Stars as They Were" roll.
