Safe at Home!
DIRECTOR: WALTER DONIGER
CAST: MICKEY MANTLE, ROGER MARIS , WILLIAM FRAWLEY, WHITEY FORD, RALPH HOUK
Meaty big-screen roles for New York Yankees superstars Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris anchor this amiable sports comedy, released the year after Maris’s landmark 61-dinger season. A Florida boy’s fib to his Little League teammates—that he knows Mantel and Maris—gets out of hand, and leads to him shadowing his idols through spring training, with hilarious results. A film steeped in pinstripe lore, with William Frawley in his final film appearance, and supporting work by Yanks Whitey Ford and Ralph Houk.
