Movie Info

Elmer Kane (Joe E. Brown) is an arrogant but gullible baseball player who must leave his Gentryville sweetheart, Nellie (Patricia Ellis), to join the Chicago Cubs. Once on board, his teammates take advantage of his gullibility with practical jokes, and the management hides the letters that come from Nellie. When she comes to Chicago to see him play the World Series, a series of misunderstandings and bad judgments threatens to ruin both his love life and career.

Critic Reviews for Elmer the Great

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • If anyone missed the other performances of Elmer they may be surprised to find Joe E. Brown actually playing straight in this one; a task seemingly impossible for Hollywood comedians, but one which adds a great deal to the pleasure of the audience.
