  • This film has an introduction by Pat McCann, Executive Director of the National Association of Jai-Alai Frontons. This film has lovely photography of the Basque region of Spain and France and tells how jai-alai is a way out of the traditional life. It tells about the origin of the sport, the making of the basket (cesta) and the ball (pelota), and how the game is played. The first US game was played in Miami in 1926. Produced by Tel-Air Interests.
