"Damn Yankees"
What if you could help your favorite team win the pennant? And what if you got to be the star of that team? For lifelong Washington Senators fan Joe Boyd that dream comes true when after seeing his team lose yet again, he rashly declares that he would sell his soul to the devil to see his team beat the Yankees. The Devil goes by Mr. Applegate now, and he agrees that Joe--a one-time baseball standout--will play for the Senators and help them reach the promised land. But Joe persuades Applegate to give him an escape clause, should he dislike his new identity. Applegate declares that he can back out at any time before the last game of the season--if he plays in the final game, he'll belong to the Devil. Featuring members of the original Broadway cast (Tab Hunter was not in the original cast).

Yep. Damn Yankees and its peculiar storyline, that combines a pact with Satan (of all things) and winning baseball's World Series, may be just too silly and absurd for words, but, all the same, as an impressively staged 1958, Musical/Comedy, it is quite entertaining in the long run._____ You really don't have to be much of a baseball fan to enjoy Damn Yankees. This fluffy, good-natured, Technicolor romp features a good-looking cast, some likable tunes, and a couple of real dynamite musical numbers showcasing the talents of actress/dancer, Gwen Verdon._____ Even the big, husky heart-throb, Tab Hunter kicks up his heels and gets into the toe-tapping spirit of Damn Yankees (though he's never given a chance to sing)._____ So, if you enjoy Musicals from the fabulous 1950s, then you're sure to be delighted by the likes of Damn Yankees.

trite musical, Edith Bunker does a bit of "You Got to Have Heart", Gwen Verdon is a cardboard Lola, who doesn't get whatever she wants, probably cause Bob Fosse, the choreographer, is before his prime, your "Favorite Martian" plays an impish, uninspired and uninspiring devil, only Tab Hunter, yes Tab Hunter, comes out appropriately and convincingly innocent and, most of all, consistently and splendidly, glowingly, golden
