Banning ( 1967 )
- Cynthia Golden
This is a smooth story about a rough game, its players are ruthless and their lives are never how they seem. They play by day to win and by night they are always smooth talking,hard drinking and lustful for every second of life.Banning shows the other side of a game the world plays everyday. Banning is a man who goes after what he wants trying not to lose his soul with the final shot. Enjoy.

Robert Wagner stars as a pro golfer who needs a job at a high class country club with a friend who tried to run him off the golf tour. Character suspicians abound here but Mike Banning(Wagner) gets an assistant job and starts to fraternize with members. Mostly a soapish story but colorful too. Jill St.John and Anjanette Comer are love interests as Wagner has to win a club tournament to pay off his debts. There are better golf stories but at least this one had some class. Quincy Jones music was nominated for the song "The Eyes of Love".

What a great movie! Robert Wagner and Jill St. John are superb!! I can't believe TCM has not shown this film.....old movies shown over and over again and not once has this movie been shown. Shame on TCM especially since RJ and Robert O. are friends. Needless to say I'm a Wagner fan from long back and will always be one but lets not be remiss on showing this great golf film....RJ was wonderful; not only as an actor but as a golfer as well!
Great movie once you understand the genre, style and time.
Best Golf Movie Ever
- Pamela Shortridge
I saw this movie in 1968 in the theatre; since then, I've only seen it twice on TV. Why isn't it available on DVD or even VCR? The cast is loaded with talent, golf scenes are realistic, music is superb (Quincy Jones!) and Robert Wagner, with his soon to be wife (Jill St. John) shine in every shot. Please, please, please get Universal to release it on DVD.......
Banning movie accurate on Country Club life
- bob handley
Banning is a very real and accurate account of life and goings on in Expensive Country Clubs. I was a Tennis Pro in several clubs and this real life. Well acted and the score is haunting. I Love this movie.

Saw the movie in the early 70's and loved it. The song "Through the Eyes of Love" has always been one of my favorites. I liked the story line, especially the golf sequences. Since becoming a movies DVD/Video collector, I have tried, in vain, to get a copy of this movie. If any EVER come available, Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have always been a Robert Wagner fan through his movies and TV showes.

Great look at 60's era Country Club Set! Show it during the Masters run-up week! Overlooked gem, Wagner is at his best!
add this to the mix
- alan miller
Granted, this is a thin film. But it's worth watching if for no other reason to see Anjanette Comer again. And the Quincy Jones score, notably The Eyes of Love was nominated for an Oscar. Give schmaltz a chance.
Why Don't You Show THIS Instead of PSYCHO!
- Don of Sacramento
TCM seems to be in a "repeat" pattern and needs to freshen the line-up of movies. "Banning" is a great start to ending that rut.
Wonderful Soap Opera
