Film adaptation of the George Abbott Broadway musical about a Washington Senators fan who makes a pact with the Devil to help his baseball team win the league pennant. Written by

It's a picture in a million! Starring that girl in a million, the red-headed darling of the Broadway show, Gwen Verdon!
Did You Know?
The Mambo Dancer who dances with Gwen Verdon
in the tribute to Joe Hardy was Bob Fosse
--who was not only the choreographer of this film (and choreographer-director of later films, such as Cabaret
(1972)) but also Verdon's husband. See more
When Joe is introduced to the manager and the reporter at the ballpark, there is a palm tree in the background, although the scene takes place in Washington DC. See more
I've got thousands of Washington fans drooling under the illusion that the Senators are going to win the pennant!
Aw Chief, that's awfully good! When they lose there'll be suicides and heart attacks and apoplexy... just like the good old days!
