Trivia

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.

Lamentably poor musical
27 April 2003 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

The vaudeville team of Van and Schenck concluded their brief film career with this positively dreadful MGM musical, a surprisingly bad film considering it was co-directed by Jack Conway and Sam Wood. In a stretch, the two less than wry hams play a vaudeville team who double up as star players for the Blue Sox, a professional baseball team of no apparent fixed address. The film features some poor and forgettable songs, dreadful editing, and some of the most boring baseball footage ever committed to celluloid, including the climactic World Series battle between the Blue Sox (probably modeled on the Boston Red Sox) and the Bears (whose gothic 'B' implies they're standing in for the Detroit Tigers). The only interesting part of the film is the Harlem Madness sequence, featuring the magnetic Nina Mae McKinney as a chorus line singer.
