Alibi Ike (1935)

Starring Joe E. Brown, Olivia De Havilland, Ruth Donnelly, Roscoe Karns, William Frawley 
Directed by Ray Enright

Print: black/white
Runtime: 73min.
Genre: Comedy

Baseball rookie Frank X. Farrell is a phenom, a kid who can hurl the ol' horsehide and swing the lumber so well he may lead Chicago's beloved Cubbies to a pennant. He can sure spin excuses and blarney, too! Joe E. Brown brings a whirlybird wind-up and a love for the game to this comic Ring Lardner tale. You can't tell the players without a scorecard but sports-minded moviegoers recognized Bob Meusel, Jim Thorpe and other former professional ball players on the film's diamonds. But an even bigger treat for viewers then and now is the first screen appearance of a future movie immortal singled out as "a charming newcomer" by Frank S. Nugent in The New York Times. Her name: Olivia de Havilland.

Elmer The Great (1933)

Starring Joe E. Brown, Patricia Ellis, Frank McHugh, Claire Dodd, Preston S. Foster 
Directed by Mervyn LeRoy

Print: black/white
Runtime: 73 min.
Genre: drama

The best-loved of Joe E. Brown's baseball vehicles casts the comic as the cocky country-boy phenom plucked from the sticks by the Chicago Cubs in order to land them a pennant, but who might have to hit the showers once big-city fixers get their claws into him. Rousing take on the George M.
