This disjointed baseball yarn has trouble getting past first base as it haphazardly weaves on and off the field with flat stereotypes. Riddled with editing errors its a sloppy mess that somehow tries to maintain it's balance on the yearning expressions of the leads and some totally uninspired camera-work on the diamond.
Country boy pitching talent Ben Harding impresses a big league manager who gives the untested hayseed a shot in majors. In no time at all Harding develops a huge ego (typical of today's stars but not back then) and is sent packing after having an on the field meltdown. Humbled and humiliated he gets another chance to redeem himself and win the girl.
The Busher is a slap dash production of insipid emotion and incoherent editing as it lurches from one moment to the next before making little or no sense as director Jerome Storm attempts to keep it patched together in its less than an hour's running time by re-using some of the game scenes crammed into moments that have neither rhyme nor reason.
Charles Ray as Ben does a commendable enough job of transitioning from innocent bumpkin to pampered star but he's given very little to work with in between while Coleen Moore as the love interest flutters appropriately. John Gilbert provides a lightweight heavy but even he looks confused as to what his role is.
