Long before "Major League," this hilarious baseball comedy thrilled crowds with the antics of Chicago Cubs pitcher "Ike" Farrell (Joe E. Brown). As the rookie sensation leads his team to victory, Ike's habit of making excuses tries the patience of his fiancée (Olivia de Havilland, in her film debut) and his manager (William Frawley). But will a mix-up with gamblers bring his winning streak to an end? With Ruth Donnelly, Roscoe Karns. 72 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
