Storyline

Casey is upset about having struck out his last chance at bat but his wife suggests they have a son to follow in their dad's footsteps. Eventually, a child is born but, to Casey's dismay, it's a girl, not a boy. His wife suggests they try again several more times but each time, it's still another girl. Casey is depressed but his pals tell him that in spite of everything, they still make a powerful baseball team. Casey likes the idea and accepts. However, the day of the big game, he is nervous that one of them will strike out and attempts to make the last home run himself disguised as one of his own daughters.

one of the eternal subjects
27 September 2004 | by Mikko_Elo_See all my reviews

what was surely considered by the men that made this film in 1954 a way to please the censors and say a word for women's rights, today seems like a shockingly sexist, politically incorrect caricature. women are considered 'mistakes', by the narrator. on the field the girls are doing their makeup and making sexy moves for the crowd. wife is home on the stove. man is on the club smoking cigars. certainly an interesting view historically. one has to remember the battle of the sexes had already begun long before this film came out by the braver individuals, but the rooted attitudes have always been difficult to change. have we changed, or are we in the same situation now, 50 years later?

5 of 10, no good but must see
