Audience Reviews for Rhubarb


Predictable antics ensue when an eccentric millionaire dies and leaves his baseball team to his cat. Ray Milland was good as always, but if you want to see him in a comedic role a better choice would be "It Happens Every Spring", another comedic baseball film. The supporting cast was uniformly good, especially Gene Lockhart, Jan Sterling and William Frawley. Paul Douglas makes a cameo as a man in the park. Look for Leonard Nimoy in an early non-speaking role as one of the ballplayers.
