Yes Sir, That's My Baby (1949) DVD-R

Quick Overview

Starring Donald O'Connor, Charles Coburn, Gloria DeHaven, Joshua Shelley, Barbara Brown,

Jim Davis

Directed by George Sherman



Print: color

Runtime: 82 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



One of the better Universal "budget" musicals of the postwar era, Yes Sir, That's My Baby

serves as an excellent showcase for Donald O'Connor. The timely script concerns the

problems facing ex-GIs as they adjust to marriage, parenthood, and (thanks to the GI Bill)

college life. William Waldo Winfield (O'Connor) is among the new collegiates who are

frustrated by a campus rule barring married men from playing on the football team. This

rule is the handiwork of spinsterish psychology professor Boland (Barbara Brown), who is

in cahoots with the male students' wives. Solving everything is crusty biology prof Jason

Hartley (Charles Coburn), whose long-ago reluctance to exchange wedding vows is the

cause of Professor Boland's vendetta. As Donald O'Connor's wife, Gloria de Haven is very

pretty and modestly talented. Featured in the cast as one of the football players is Joshua

Shelley, who shortly thereafter was blacklisted from films because of his allegedly

left-of-center political views.
