What I'm Watching: "The Great American Pastime"

The Great American Pastime (1956)
Starring Tom Ewell, Anne Francis , Ann Miller.

*Swoooon!*... Anne Francis is in this comedy, paired up with the humorously self-deprecating Tom Ewell (from Seven Year Itch).

The Great American Pastime - (Original Trailer) @TCM

Husband and father Tom Ewell is volunteered to coach a beleaguered peewee little league baseball team, the Panthers. Unfortunately the new coach soon learns that in teaching his players the honorable art of good sportsmanship, that no one is happy with him; not the players, not the parents, and not even his wife (Anne Francis). As if this wasn't enough trouble, the lead pitcher's single mother (Ann Miller) leaves the luckless coach with the notion that she's got more than just baseball on her mind, with hilarious consequences to follow! It's a laugh-a-minute riot when you play The Great American Pastime!

(Wow... I oughtta write movie synopsis's for a living...) ;D

Coolness Alert! Don't miss out on Miss Miller's swanky-sophisticated single-mom pad. Not too shabby ;)

Ah ha, now I've caught you! Swooning over Altaira Morbius, aren't you? Space Commander has been revealed to be Space Commander John J. Adams!!

Space Commander said...

Ack! I guess I may as well admit it... (especially now, since I've been SO busted) =X

So ummm, I have a thing for Altaira? Hehe... *whistlin*

Miss Atomic Ranch Lady, don't you just hate that when people delete their comments from your posts?!

You know what I find even more odd?

When someone posts a comment, then add their blog or website link in as a P.S., when it's right there in their blogger name. Don't they know it's already there?

I would have something to say about that, except then I'd have to delete it afterwards.
