It Happens Every Spring (10-Jun-1949)

Director: Lloyd Bacon

Writers: Valentine Davies; Shirley W. Smith

Music: Leigh Harline

Producer: William Perlberg

Keywords: Sports Comedy, Baseball, Secret Formula

A college chemistry professor stumbles across a formula which causes objects to repel wood. He offers to pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for $1000 each game he is able to win. After the Commissioner of Baseball Albert "Happy" Chandler read the script, he found the film so excessively silly that he decreed no baseball players would be permitted to appear in it.
