Re: Take Me Out to the Movies or Movies Madness
Ring Lardner is said to have patterned Alibi Ike after baseball player King Cole. A bunch of popular major leaguers made cameo appearances in the film, among others Guy Cantrell, Dick Cox, Cedric Durst, Mike Gazella, Wally Hood, Don Hurst, Smead Jolley, Lou Koupal, Bob Meusel, Wally Rehg and Jim Thorpe.
I didn't know Joe E Brown was born in Ohio (Holgate).
I've been searching for a copy of Alibi Ike. I found a new VHS copy, which I bought. I have the capability to then burn it over onto DVD.
He played the daffy millionaire Osgood Fielding in Some Like It Hot (1959), wherein Joe, after discovering that his "girlfriend" Jack Lemmon was actually a man, brought down the house by uttering the film's classic punchline: "Well, nobody's perfect."
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
