Alibi Ike (15-Jun-1935)

Director: Ray Enright

Writers: William Wister Haines; Ring Lardner

Musical Director: Leo F. Forbstein

Keywords: Sports Comedy, Baseball

Francis X. "Ike" Farrell earns his nickname from repeated excuses, but as long as hit pitching arm is healthy the Chicago Cubs have a good chance of reaching the "World Serious." He falls for Dolly Stevens, played by Olivia de Havilland in her first screen role, but he seems unable to acknowledge the romance with teammates. Third film of Joe E. Brown's baseball trilogy has a thin plot, but still quite funny.
