Quick Opener

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

QUICK OPENER is a short comedy. A baseball movie for the initiated, it includes references to Roberto Clemente, Bill Mazeroski, Dock Ellis and the legendary 1960 Pirates versus Yankees World Series. Bruno Sammartino also gets a mention, but my after-the-fact research indicates that Bruno was a professional wrestler and not a baseball player. There are so many details to keep track of in making a film. Anyway, this film also contains the world's longest baseball joke. QUICK OPENER plays well with THE SUICIDE SQUEEZE, but it should definitely be shown last in a program in which the two are paired.
