What was that game on Yours, Mine and Ours


Recommended Posts

My son and I were watching Yours, Mine and Ours and he asked me what's that game and I didn't know but I told him I bet the people at TCM would know. Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball are shown playing a game rolling a ball it seems down a cement or dirt track toward other balls and some of these are of different sizes. It was during one of their dates in the San Francisco area. What is this game and what is the purpose. I'm guessing it is a regional activity?

I missed that scene, but your description sounds like Bocce Ball. It's an Italian game, akin to lawn bowling. There are Bocce Ball courts in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. It does my heart good to see the fine gentlemen and ladies -- usually dressed all in white -- playing the leisurely game there. From the older crowd, you'll hear the beautiful Fiorentino dialect...
