Product Description

Product Description

In the 1890s, a woman takes over an ailing baseball outfit, overcoming the inevitable testosterone-fuelled hostility of the players to lead them to success. Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly are a pair of Vaudeville hoofers caught between their duty to the team and the lure of stage stardom. Busby Berkeley directed the dialogue scenes, but quit before the musical segments, leaving them to Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly, who used them to experiment with the innovative dancing movements they used to fuller effect in 'On the Town'.

Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly play Dennis Ryan and Eddie O'Brien, the most popular song-and-dance team in vaudeville. However, during the summer the boys are star players for the Wolves baseball team. This season both boys are distracted by the arrival of K. C. Higgins (Esther Williams), the team's new manager! Meanwhile, Eddie becomes involved with gambler Joe Lorgan (Edward Arnold), who wants to wreck the Wolves' chance for the pennant. Jules Munshin plays teammate Nat Goldberg and Betty Garrett is Shirley Delwyn, who has been pursuing Dennis so that when Eddie gets K.C., both boys will have somebody to go home to. This 1949 film was directed by Busby Berkeley, based on a story by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, who directed the dance sequences, which are clearly the best part of this musical. Not a great musical, but Sinatra and Kelly are both pleasant enough. The DVD edition of "Take Me out to the Ball Game" includes a pair of deleted Songs: "Baby Doll" and "Boys and Girls Like You and Me."
