Strikes and Spares

"Strikes and Spares" is an Oscar nominated short from 1934 that features top professional bowler Andy Varipapa demonstrating proper bowling technique followed by an incredible trick shot display. Filmed showing two lanes with a manual pin setter, this film is pretty fascinating not only for the impressive bowling ability of its star but also for the nifty camerawork employed by the filmmakers.
