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>

Can't Get His Head In The Game
22 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

RKO came out with this innocuous baseball comedy that had a few laughs in it Ladies' Day. So named because its the baseball wives who decide to take matters into their own hands.

Eddie Albert plays the lovestruck star pitcher who when he gets involved with a woman his head just isn't in the game. And he's got himself really involved with a moviestar this time, Lupe Velez. Now she's enough to take anyone's mind off the athletic contest. It's driving manager Cliff Clark to distraction.

But the wives of the other players led by Patsy Kelly and Iris Adrian want that World Series money real bad and that won't happen if Albert isn't pitching his best. They conspire in a series of Lucy Ricardo like maneuvers to keep Eddie and Lupe apart.

Although Velez and Albert have the top billing, Patsy Kelly and her cronies steal this film totally from the stars. These dizzy dames pull off some interesting schemes and it doesn't let up for a minute.

Also look for Jerome Cowan who is a banker whose bank owns the team now and he's the bean counter sent to manage the money. The fact his bank also has Velez's studio in receivership makes him think he can combine both his jobs and that leads to some interesting situations.

RKO was a second line studio and this is clearly a B picture for them which is different than a B film for Paramount or MGM. Still Ladies' Day is not bad at all and baseball fans and fans of any of the cast members will get more than a few laughs.
