Format: VHS Tape
This is a good biopic about golf immortal Ben Hogan, master of the repetitive swing and accurate beyond belief. It reflects the dramatic standards of 1951, however, and you just have to know that Ben and wife Valerie CRINGED when they saw some of the onscreen exchanges between Glen Ford and Anne Baxter.
Hogan himself hit the golf shots for this film, and you can easily see how masterful he was. The Beatles later wrote a theme song for "Follow the Sun," but there was never enough demand to substantiate a re-release of the movie updated with that musical addition.

It has been many years since watching Follow the Sun. This is a motivational movie for any young golfer to watch. It is about faith and persistance.
As a young man this picture had a major influence on my life. When it is available for sale again, I will be the first to buy a copy.

A wonderful movie with great performances by Glenn Ford and Anne Baxter. It follows the career of Ben Hogan faithfully, with the fictional parts blending in nicely. It helps of course that Hogan himself had a hand in the making of this film and I think makes it more believable. A good gift for the film buff and golf fanatic alike.

Entertaining and very definitely reflective of the time the movie was made - it actually looks old and, to tell you the truth, I found it a bit slow-moving. But as I understand it, Ben Hogan was a consultant so it's probably a pretty good portrait of the man. I purchased it because of the memory I had of going to see the movie with my father when I was about ten years old and him explaining the game of golf to me because I had no clue what it was all about. I don't know how I felt about it when I was ten but, looking at it through 73-year-old eyes it's more the memory I enjoy than the movie.

I bought this DVD mainly for my husband who is an avid golfer and a follower of Ben Hogan's method. I didn't know all the challenges that Ben Hogan went through. It was a well-done, well-acted movie and we both enjoyed it very much and I was so glad to find it on DVD (I've been looking for it for several years). It was well done and my husband said it did a very good job of showing Hogan's life. I know you'll enjoy it as much as we did.

Glenn Ford as Ben Hogan , this is his story. The legendary Ben Hogan who loved to play golf, and was a champion, only to suffer in a car accident. Near death, and requiring life saving surgery which impeded his abilty to walk and play the game he loved. Hogan endures a remarkable comeback, not only to life, and walking but playing golf again..As a champion. Definitely worth watching..

Being a golfer and a fan of the sport for many years, I was very interested in seeing this, which I did when the VHS first came out. Later, I saw it again because of the same reason plus I usually find Glenn Ford's films entertaining. Also, Ben Hogan was a fascinating man and incredible golfer. The things he accomplished after nearly dying in a horrific car crash and are amazing and inspiring.

The only probleml I had with the film was showing what a nice guy he usually was, and someone cared lot about what the public thought. That's not true; he could care less. Anyone who knew Hogan, or competed against him, will tell you that. This is like the hokey William Bendix movie on Babe Ruth.

I don't need all of Ben's faults pointed out, but went overboard in the other direction. Even the great Hogan would tell you that. I've read where this film embarrassed him.

Anyone who knows Fort Worth History, knows about Ben Hogan and his back ground. This is a wonderfully done story about his life and comeback. Very interesting and the choice of characters are great! You will love watching it.
