Overview

The second of comedian Benny Rubin's two starring features for Tiffany Studios, Hot Curves is a spoof of baseball manager John McGraw's publicity-conscious efforts to put a Jewish player on the New York Giants. Rubin plays Benny Goldberg, a soda jerk who joins the Pittsburgh Cougars along with his egotistical pal Jim Dolan Rex Lease. While Benny works himself up to star-player status, Jim falters badly, thanks mostly to his ever-expanding ego and his romantic misadventures with manager's daughter Elaine McGrew Alice Day and predatory Margie Natalie Morehead. He pulls himself together in time to lead his team to victory during the World Series, but not before he's put through the emotional wringer when Benny is reported killed in a plane crash. Featured in the cast as Benny's Irish-Catholic girlfriend is Pert Kelton, three years before her "official" screen bow in RKO's Bed of Roses.
