Overview

Running just under an hour, Sport Parade stars Joel McCrea as a sportwriter who accidently becomes a champion wrestler. In this capacity, he becomes involved with crooked promoters (just as though pro wrestling was a legitimate sport!). Since the main crook is played by comic actor Walter Catlett, it's difficult to take any of this film seriously--if indeed it was meant to be so taken. The best moments belong to Robert Benchley as a sublimely inaccurate radio sportscaster. Sport Parade was cowritten by the prolific Corey Ford, who later cheerfully admitted he knew nothing about the subject of wrestling but was just following studio orders by churning out this indifferent little charade.
