Trivia

Footage from the final football game of the film was taken from the January 1, 1949 Raisin Bowl in Fresno California between Occidental College and Colorado A&M ( now Colorado State University). Only about one minute of the actual Raisin Bowl game is shown in the movie, but in the close-up shots Universal used the uniforms of Occidental (Orange and black) and Colorado A&M (green, white and orange).

Donald O'Connor and Gloria DeHaven provide a nice mix of music and comedy in Yes Sir, That's My Baby
19 June 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

For several months, I've favorited a lot of Donald O'Connor movies on YouTube that, as far as I know, aren't available on either old VHS tapes or on current DVD's. Now I finally took the time to watch one of them. In this one, Donald is one of several former G.I.s now in college-who are also new dads-who's also on the football team...well, he would be if his wife Gloria DeHaven, also a student, would let him. It seems his coach played by Charles Coburn, who also teaches biology there, had once a relationship with the female instructor of Ms. DeHaven, Barbara Brown, that didn't end well. Their animosity is what has caused the wives of the other former G.I.s to also put their foot down, so to speak. But you know where there's a will there's a way...Plenty of funny stuff concerning babies and other domestic mishaps occur but of course with both O'Connor and DeHaven on board there's also singing and dancing. Donald, in fact, has a fine tap dancing number at the laundromat. By the way, the reason that I watched this now is because since I'm reviewing members of the original "Dallas" cast in previous movies and TV shows in chronological order, this was next on the list since Jim "Jock Ewing" Davis is among the G.I. football players. So on that note, Yes Sir, That's My Baby gets a recommendation.
