Movie Info

A newspaper reporter, Jennifer Paige (Janet Leigh), is investigating the Pittsburgh Pirates' losing streak. The team is led by manager Guffy McGovern (Paul Douglas), whose swearing and fighting hinder his team's progress. Meanwhile, an orphan named Bridget White (Donna Corcoran) has been praying for the team, and her pleas are answered by an angelic voice. The angel begins urging Guffy to be kinder in return for helping the Pirates win, but the playoffs test the manager's temper.

    Donna Corcoran's performance as the little girl who sees angels, and Janet Leigh as a newspaper reporter are the best reasons to watch. The location photography, too.

    The original version does not sport the technical capabilities of the popular Disney remake ... and so they garner their credentials the old-fashioned way: they earn them. The extremely likeable Paul Douglas leads as a crusty and foul-mouthed baseball manager stuck with a knucklehead team until he is granted heavenly assistance. Janet Leigh is nice as a reporter with the woman's perspective, and Keenan Wynn is good as a sports announcer. The showdown lowdown: Less pyrotechnics, more heart.

    This original movie is better than its 90s remake, I recommend seeing this one first if you haven't seen the remake, though. It's funny, dramatic, and baseball themed of course. I really liked it.
