Storyline

Rich, eccentric T.J. Banner adopts a feral cat who becomes an affectionate pet. Then T.J. dies, leaving to Rhubarb most of his money and a pro baseball team, the Brooklyn Loons. When the team protests, publicist Eric Yeager convinces them Rhubarb is good luck. But Eric's fiancée Polly seems to be allergic to cats, and the team's success may mean new hazards for Rhubarb.

a long time favorite
1 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beautiful Jan Sterling was, in real life, married to Paul Douglas. At the end of Rhubarb she and Ray Milland walk through central park, with Rhubarb, following are three female cats, each with several kittens following them. - As they pass a man, sitting, reading a newspaper, he looks up - it turns out to be Paul Douglas who comments about the cat having a litter by three wives (A Letter To Three Wives being a film Douglas was starring in). No real baseball teams are mentioned, though its clear the main team is the Brooklyn Dodgers. The series game at the end of the film is between the Dodgers and the New York Giants. 6 degrees of baseball movies.... Milland also starred in the baseball classic "It Happens Every Spring" along with Paul Douglas. Paul Douglas was in the original "Angels in the Outfield" William Frawly was in several baseball films including "Kill The Umpire" with William Bendix (who portrayed Babe Ruth in the Babe Ruth in the Babe Ruth Story).
