Storyline

Wacky Waters, the greatest pitcher in baseball, is burning up the league until he meets Pepita Zorita, a bundle of Mexican dynamite from Hollywood. Before long, Wacky can't pitch for thinking of Pepita. The team is on a losing streak. The catcher Hippo Jones, team bachelor Smokey Lee and Marty Samuels, an educated ball player, try coaching, warnings and psychology to distract Wacky's attention away from Pepita but nothing works. The wives of the ballplayers, led by Hazel Jones, devise a plan to get rid of Pepita. They talk banker/owner Updyke into buying the picture rights to "Twenty-one Nights" and sending Pepita back to Hollywood to star in the film. It works as Wacky begins winning his pitching starts again, but Pepita breaks all records for her for finishing a film and heads back. The wives fly to Kansas City, meet Pepita with a baseball bat and other kidnapping tools and Pepita wakes up in a bathroom on the 22nd story of a hotel tied and gagged with two guardians. After fights ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A fun diversion in the midst of WWII.
14 March 2000 | by (Glastonbury, Ct) – See all my reviews

Lupe Velez was a wonderful Latin version of Lucille Ball. She must have been a riot to direct. For early baseball buffs this B movie would be fun. A nice blend in the cast of two stars (Velez and Albert) and an assortment of skilled character actors.
