Early in the film, some boys stop to watch two men on a bridge catch a fish. However, the fish doesn't move as they reel it in - its obviously a prop or a dead fish that was previously placed on the line for them to pull out. See more »
"Miami" Joe Morrison was Miami's number 1 leading man during the 1960s. Sadly, "Miami" Joe starred in one stinker after another. Amazingly this film, which I only rate a 5, was Joe's best. Of course, he had an uncredited role as Hank, so maybe that's why this film was his best.
The movie really is a stinker, but it is kind of neat to see a legend like Micky Mantell. The movie is just a mindless and enjoyable trip down memory lane, capturing a more innocent time for the sport of baseball as well as the local Miami, Florida landscape.
Safe at home is a safe bet for some minor entertainment and a chance to see "Miami" Joe Morrison in his best movie.
