Movie Info

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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
