Bicycle Film Society April 8th show - 6 Day Bike Racer
Following our very successful show in March we
are incredibly excited to bring you this 1934 comedy to go with our
March documentary, 6 Day Bike Racer. Small-town bumpkin Winfred Simpson is annoyed by the
attention paid to his girl, Phyllis Jenkins, by a hotshot trick cyclist,
Harry St. Clair. When Phyliss turns Winfred down, he hits the road to
become a success at the big 6-Day bike race. He meets Clinton Hemmings
and they become partners as it is a two-man event, and get practice time
for the race by getting jobs as bicycle messengers. Winfred, delivering
a message to St. Clair at his hotel, mistakes a voice he hears in St.
Clair's room as Phyllis, gets into a fight with him and hauled off to
the pokey. The race starts without him, with Clinton riding alone.
Finally getting released from jail, Winfred races on a "borrowed" bike
to the "Velodrome" and enters the race just in time.
