This Movie is Worth Your Time! (Nine Minutes)


This Movie is Worth Your Time! (Nine Minutes)

I recently saw a note about "Take A Cue" (1939), starring cueist great Charles C. Peterson and famous shorts-narrator Pete Smith. If you'd like to view it, go to IMDb.com for the movie and click on External Sites. Do not confuse this movie with British clips of the same title in 1933 or '36, especially on YouTube. One of the IMDb reviewers of the movie claimed that the billiards table was a pool table that had mistakenly been built without the pockets!

Speaking of Mr. Peterson, I also read a note in a Mike Shamos' book that he set a record for "driving a billiard ball the furthest distance at the Navy Pier in Chicago", 334 feet. I've had no luck on searches (and I won't pay to read a New York Times article from the 1930's), so if anyone can confirm this I'd like to know if he "drove" it with a cue or a golf club....
