Description
The batters couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a boat. The fielders must be using frying pans instead of baseball mitts.

It looks like the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates haven’t got a prayer…until the prayers of a young orphan girl get the Pirates some celestial support! Comedy and charm form the winning lineup of Angels in the Outfield, starring Paul Douglas as the team’s short-fused manager. “Dogs have fleas, managers have sportswriters,” he grouses to a columnist (Janet Leigh) covering the team. Adding to the fun are game footage from back in the day (buffs will love to spot the stars); support from Keenan Wynn, Spring Byington and more familiar talents; plus unbilled bits by baseball greats Joe DiMaggio and Ty Cobb.

One more footnote about this nifty ’50s diamond: President Eisenhower called it his favorite movie. Batter up!

          This a comedy. It is about baseball. I watch this movie every spring. It is warm-hearted movie.

          Paul Douglas has the loudest foul mouth known. He has the worst and fearsome temper even known. He is the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates team. They are ranked lowest in both leagues.

          Janet Leigh is a newspaper columnist for Household Hints. Her editor sent her to review a game, get a fresh view point. In the press box, she is asking the fellows simple questions. What is an Out? What is a Foul Ball? What is a Strike?

          Leigh tells her editor how she can't write anything about the game today. Douglas demeans, demoralizes, dispirits his team. How can they perform under those conditions? He shouts, "Perfect!" Write what you just said to me. You have your story.

          It was interesting to watch that game. How Hollywood blocked Douglas's foul words from us yet lets us hear his raised voice.

          That evening an Angel visits Douglas on the ball field. The Angel promises to help the team if Paul will him a promise of controlling his temper and using a better vocabulary.

          The next day, the nun's of an orphanage take their charges for a outing at the baseball game. A sweet little moppet sees the angels! A newspaper man writes an article about it. The girl who see angels is Donna Corcoran.

          Paul goes to orphanage to see Donna. Although he only hears his angel, he wants to confirms her vision. Janet visits the orphanage too, she asks if she can take Donna to the game. The pressmen overfeed Donna waiting for the angels to appear.

          Anyhow, Paul and Janet with Donna form a special friendship. Will Donna get adopted? Did the angels help this baseball team members unknowing? Yes.

          I guarantee you will you like the end. It is like life, both disappointments and happy surprises. Are we ever visited by angels? You decide.

                Nice to see movies that weren't afraid to mention GOD.
                Today's movies often times mock God or deny him completely. Kind of sad that we have lost a lot of
                our values.
