Don Carter STILL IS the greatest bowler of all time.
uh, I dunno how to break the news to you… Don Carter died a few years ago. he STILL IS dead.
Carrie Zhu what do you mean by that comment, are you mocking the fact that he died? Don Carter’s accomplishments are legendary in spite of your juvenile & immature comments.
The Legend Don Carter great films he was my idle growing up.
Don Carter was your idle?
I love the banter from 20:49 – 21:01
Had to have been after 1958 because they’re using automatic hand dryers.
The days when it didn’t matter how hard you hit the ball. It wasn’t moving. You actually had to hit your mark to strike and spare shooting was key.
I have never seen Don Carter bowl, and I always wondered as he was a star when I was a kid. Bowling in general always paid homage to Don Carter, so I always wondered what he was like bowling. This is the first time I’ve ever seen Don bowl. What a delivery. Very odd. But I guess it’s no worse than the 2 handed bowlers of today. Just unusual. Loved it, Thank you for posting.
his bowling stroke looks like he’s pushing the ball.
I always enjoyed bowling duck pins. To bad big money & TV never televised tournaments of it.
don carter looks like a really cool character. both guys roll a really soft ball.
Don Carter was so cool, he could carry ice in his pockets Lol
Seriously, he was a class act and one of the best bowlers of all time.
Enjoy the old bowlers, and less chatter boxes
all these classic shows I’ve been watching and I’ve literally seen one ten pin left in about 40 of these games over these shows on YouTube. A dime a dozen in today’s game. All the angle of entry and deflection. I’m going back to a rubber ball. EDIT: after watching this show in its entirety, fully retract my statement.
What Can I say. These guys were the pioneers of the game.
All gentlemen & good sports.
Well……… what can you say about being able to go back in time and SEE the people you only heard of.
Nice to see hand written scoring again.
Jack Buck Sr commentary. Love these old bowlers
Always impressed with 10 pin sparing back them, always hitting the belly
I still have the pad from my old glove.
Donald Carter puts a tremendous amount of roll on the ball.
