Some scenes filmed at old Yankee Stadium before outfield upper deck was installed. Towards the end of the film, the Stadium was panned slowly from left to right field. Rain delay footage showed grounds crew covering the field with sections of tarp rather than rolling one big piece onto the field. When the rain stopped, they folded them up and carried them off.

in this ok 1930 film that stars Joe Schenck and Gus Van as baseball players who hit the vaudeville stage off season. While Schenck and Van were real vaudeville stars, their film careers never took off, and this film showcases their strengths as performers as well as their weaknesses. Their ethnic accent-oriented songs will strike many today as being VERY un-PC just as their songs now seem blah. Into this mix, however, comes the wonderful Bessie Love as their love interest. The always perky Love has only a few moments to shine in this film, but she makes it all worthwhile once hoisted atop a pinao, ukelele in hand, and sings "I've Got a Man of My Own." Love was at the height of her film career in the late 20s and early 30s, before she bailed from Hollywood and headed to London. Love's number in this film, her appearance in Hollywood Revue of 1929, and her Oscar-nominated starring turn in The Broadway Melody all show why she was popular with filmgoers. Worth a look. Co-stars Mary Doran, Benny Rubin, and Tom Dugan.
