Double Dummy is a documentary film, featuring a team of Americans playing in the junior world championships of bridge. It’s now freely streamable here and on the PBS App. The cast includes recent ACBL Player of the Year winner Zach Grossack, and three former Kings of Bridge. 

Some high school classmates started asking for bridge lessons, after having watched Double Dummy. Now, one of them already has over 1,000 Bridge Base Online logins, in a little over a year!
