Jimmy Conners claims to have gone to Chicago for the World Series three years before. The World Series is always played at the home stadiums of the competing teams and the 1937 series was between the New York Yankees and the New York Giants. The 1938 World Series was indeed between the Chicago Cubs and the New York Yankees, but that would have been only two years before the film was released. See more »

Judy Garland is absolutely lovely and amazing in this film, as she is in most of her other films from the late 1930s through the 1940s. Judy is beautiful, has a heavenly singing voice, and also knows how to be quirky, funny, and/or passionate in her speaking parts too. Judy's songs "la conga", " drummer boy", and "our love affair" are simply wonderful. And Judy doing "La conga", wow! Micky Rooney and the others, such as June Priesser are great in this film too, like when she does her tumbling act to "Ta ra ra boom der lay" during the play sequence "Nell of New Rochelle". Some people have said that the plot is too thin, but that does not matter here. And I do find the plot good enough personally. How could some reviewers not see how beautiful, charming, and talented Judy is? And her sense of wonder and the way Judy both dazzles and tugs at the heartstrings. And Judy was a very loving person in real life ( read the website, Judy Garland, too pure for this world) and I can see her love and purity on screen mixed with her other fantastic qualities. In this film and in many of her other films. Judy is beautiful and sings like the angel she is. Judy's song "I've got nobody, and nobody got me" is tear jerking. Don't worry, I love you Judy, with all my heart and soul. I hope you can hear me from up there in heaven, you sweet, wonderful angel.
