The Golf Specialist is a classic comedy short film from 1930, starring the legendary W.C. Fields, Allan Bennett, and William Black. The movie is directed by Monte Brice. The plot revolves around Fields' character, J. Effingham Bellweather, a golf enthusiast who is trying to sell golf equipment to potential customers. He also offers to teach them how to use the equipment, leading to hilarious outcomes.

The movie opens with Bellweather trying to sell golf balls to a gentleman who is uninterested in making any purchase. However, Bellweather convinces him to test out the balls by hitting them in the street. Chaos ensues as the golf balls end up causing a traffic jam and a near accident.

Next, Bellweather showcases his skills as a golfer to a young lady who is impressed with his talent. However, she soon realizes that Bellweather is not as skilled as he initially appeared when he accidentally breaks her umbrella and ruins her dress with his club.

Throughout the film, Bellweather interacts with various characters, including a timid golfer who he tries to instruct, a thieving caddy, and a golf course manager who is fed up with Bellweather's antics.

One of the highlights of the movie is a scene where Bellweather tries to hit a golf ball through a revolving door. The result is hilarious and shows off Fields' signature comedic timing and physical humor.

Another memorable scene sees Bellweather using a golf club as a weapon to defend himself against a group of swindlers who try to rob him. The scene is a great showcase of Fields' ability to seamlessly blend physical comedy with dialogue.

The Golf Specialist is a prime example of the type of slapstick comedy that was popular in the early days of cinema. W.C. Fields' performance is the standout feature of the film, with his larger-than-life personality and wit shining through in every scene.

Overall, The Golf Specialist is a must-watch for fans of classic comedy and anyone who appreciates the work of W.C. Fields. It is a timeless film that still holds up today as a testament to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
