Classic baseball farce starring Ray Milland as a college chemistry professor in search of enough money to enable him to propose to sweetheart Jean Peters. He invents a solution that repels wood and uses it to become a pitching phenomenon, striking out scores of batters with his unhittable "screwball." Paul Douglas, Ed Begley, Alan Hale, Jr. co-star. 86 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
