The Caddy

Norman Taurog
USA 1953
95min
V'13

Because of his phobia of crowds, Harvey (Lewis) turns – with a detour as a failed clerk – from a possible pro golfer to an (un)apparent Caddy of his future brother-in-law Joe ( Martin). In turn Joe tries to escape his father's profession as a fisherman and poverty with a golf carrier. As an impresario observes their unintentional laughingstocks during the golf tournament he gives them the tip, which profession they actually just truant ... a tongue-in-cheek meeting with the comedy duo itself.
