Goofs

An establishing long shot of the baseball park at the beginning of the World Series game reveals that it is Yankee Stadium --- the famous frieze of the upper deck facade is clear and recognizable. However, most game action on the field takes place in a mid-1930s version of Navin Field, home of the Detroit Tigers, and may be newsreel footage from one of the Tigers' two appearances in the Series of that era, 1934 and 1935.

Subtle and sophisticated....well, not really.
2 June 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Chase--the heckler can see how easy his transition was to stooges gamblers pay him to go to cinti

"Mr. Noisy" is a Shemp Howard solo vehicle, though he'd rejoin the Stooges later in 1946 following his brother Curly's stroke. You can see a lot of the Stooges in the style of this short, though originally it was a Charlie Chase film, "The Heckler". Oddly, the Chase film came out in 1940...only six years before Columbia re-made it.

Shemp plays the most obnoxious character most of us have ever seen on film. He spends most of the short annoying everyone around him...and when he goes to a baseball game he really is able to throw the team off due to his loud voice and boorish behaviors. Some professional gamblers see how effective he is in getting the star of the Green Sox to crumble under pressure that they pay to take him to Cincinnati in order to continue heckling the team...and so they can bet heavily against the team. What's next? See the film.

This is NOT sophisticated entertainment...but it is funny and worth seeing. Like the original, "The Heckler", I'd score this one a 6...well worth seeing but far from a must-see picture.
