Item Description...
KILL THE UMPIRE - Bill Johnson is a working man that regularly loses jobs because he cant stay out of his favorite New York ballpark. Bill gets both a blessing and a punishment when his father-in-law sends him off to umpire school to learn the profession he despises. After a great deal of resistance, Bill understands the basic nobility of being the guy that keeps the game fair and calls it as he sees it. SAFE AT HOME - When a young boy lies about knowing Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris to impress his friends, he travels to the Yankees' spring training camp to make his boast come true. The boy learns the troubles even a little white lie can cause as his made up story requires more and more lies to keep from being embarassed in front of his friends and family.

baseball double feature  May 18, 2009
Great to go back and realize how far we've come in the movie industry and officiating world. Most of these people are not on earth anymore and it's good to remember their lives on film.

William Bendix's best baseball movie  Apr 9, 2009
While this is an older film now, it's still funny. And it's not just a comedy, it's also a film about doing the right thing.
This is a film about former ball player having a hard time holding job outside of baseball. Every spring he loses his job because he can't stay away from the game. His wife puts her foot down and his father-in-law winds up helping find a job he can keep, and do well at.
William Bendix was great in this film and the man he was to later star with on The Life of Riley; Tom D'Andrea (who played his neighbor Gillis in that series) showed that could do good work together.
Not for someone looking for a faithful representation of the game, but if you're looking for fun film about the national pass time this is a good one.
Another Lloyd Bacon Winner With An Early Look At `Riley'  Mar 4, 2009
"Kill The Umpire" is a really a funny movie, something Director Lloyd Bacon produced by the carload back in "the classic era." Bacon's movies were fast-moving and entertaining, and this was no exception. If you liked William Bendix in his mid-1950s TV show, "Life Of Riley," you'll like this film. He plays the same type of guy.

Whether you enjoy baseball or, you'll get a lot of laughs out of it, too. It's just simply a goofy and likable comedy, filled with the kind of characters you'd see in a late '40s/early '50s comedy. What's nice about the older films, too, is that you actually see whole families: dad, mom and a couple of kids.

Actually, you more you know about baseball, the more you'll just shake your in disbelief at some of the things you'll see in this story because they could never happen today, or even back in 1950. (i.e. a fan coming out of the stands and punching an umpire several times over the course of a minute, and then ump slugging him....and nobody arrested?)

Anyway, Bendix is very good and the supporting case, led by underrated actor Tom D'Andrea, is fun to watch, too.

This film also will remind older film buffs of silent movie comedies with a wild scene at the end you have to see to believe. (Hint: Bendix winds up "water skiing down city streets, being pulled by an ambulance).

The second half of this twin-bill DVD, "Safe At Home," is so bad it's not even worth discussing. Suffice to say that even die-hard Yankees fans can't praise this clunker which stars real-life heroes Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.
