    "Enormously enjoyable, with a stylish ebullience and an excellent score." - Tom Milne, TIME OUT FILM GUIDE

    Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly play ball in a big way as 1900s vaudevillians who spend the winter flinging the onstage blarney and the summer flinging the ol' horsehide for base-ball's world champs, the Wolves.

    Sinatra is second sacker Dennis Ryan and Kelly is short-stop Eddie O'Brien in this Busby Berkeley-directed romp that combines baseball with that other all-American pastime: romance. Esther Williams plays the new team owner and Betty Garret is a Baseball Annie with eyes for blue-eyed Ryan. Kelly and Stanley Donen's deft musical stagings ranged from a soft-shoe duet charmer to an exciting "barrel roll" Kelly solo. Their work persuaded producer Arthur Freed to green-light their direction of the same year's On the Town.
