Full movie description "The Kid from Cleveland":Teen baseball fan Johnny Barrows sneaks into the baseball stadium of the Cleveland Indians, then playing in the 1948 World Series; claiming to be an orphan, he befriends team members & broadcaster Mike Jackson. But it develops that Johnny has a troubled home life with his mother and stepfather, and is involved in juvenile crime. His 'better side' shows only when he runs away to visit the team again. Can Mike and the Indians (playing themselves) wrest Johnny away from bad influences?
Reviews of the The Kid from ClevelandThis is not as terrible a movie as I had read. It's a typical "social problems" movie from the post-World War II era, of which more famous examples would be "The Asphalt Jungle," "The Snake Pit," etc. As such, it's about delinquent children, why they become delinquent, and what might be done to solve that issue. It's not very convincing, frankly, but it's not terrible, either. It's just that the script is bad, the acting second-rate, and the direction no better. Not terrible, but not in any way impressive.
And then there are the baseball players whom the one child delinquent admires, all real members of the 1949 Cleveland Indians. They don't talk much about baseball, we don't really see what their lives are like (with the exception of Larry Doby's at the end), etc. As such, the movie really isn't about baseball.
Early in the movie, the players muff some of their lines, though they do better later. They aren't movie stars, and they don't pretend to be.
I doubt anyone is going to want to watch this movie to see how to deal with child delinquency. Those interested in the history of baseball may well want to see some of these legendary Indians just stand around and talk. (They don't really try to do any acting, nor are they called on to do so.) There is some newsreel footage from the Indians' World Series 1948 season, though not a lot of it.
In short, this movie is a mixed bag. The social problems segments are like a run of the mill 1950s TV drama. The scenes with the legendary Indians are not great movie-making, but it's fun to see those guys when they were active players.
