Storyline

Follow the Sun : The Ben Hogan Story The inspiring film biography of the courageous champion golfer Ben Hogan.

Great Golf Story Movie

Follow the Sun : The Ben Hogan Story I have seen this movie several times since owning it and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in history, golf, Ben Hogan, or generally being entertained.

Upon creating any movie about a real person, Hollywood may choose to cast a light in a certain manner and in the vein of entertainment, what is the harm? Some may indicate that Mr. Hogan was not as cheerful and compassionate as Glenn Ford’s version but that is simply opinion. The bottom line is that Follow the Sun is very well made and acted and if you are a fan of Ben Hogan, you will love it as I do.

I am looking forward to a DVD release.


A Wonderful Golf Movie

 
I gave this movie a 10 rating, not because it was that good of a film (it wasn’t), but because to me it brings back memories of my teenage years. I saw this movie when it was released in 1951. I was 15 at the time and interested in nothing but golf. I watched the movie three times. I would have watched it over and over had it not been removed from the local theater. Even at that young age, I was a student of the game. I was intimately familiar with Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, and all the other great names in golf at that time. I had even seen most of them play in person in tournaments. I even fantasized about becoming a golf pro. I played golf whenever I could. Unfortunately, in the 40’s and 50’s, money was tight. And parents didn’t pay a lot of attention to their children’s career goals, especially if they involved becoming a sport’s figure. My dreams were dashed early. Thank goodness, I can still watch FOLLOW THE SUN and relive my teenage fantasies.
