Trivia

The pan shot of Yankee Stadium is pre-1929, while the film is 1930. By then the left field triple deck stands were built. The archival footage of Yankee Stadium games differed. Some were shot during the World Series, as evidenced by the bunting on the wall. It appears the Yanks are playing the Cubs. Other shots showed no bunting. One shot wasn't even from Yankee Stadium but a double-decked field. See more »

The highlight of the obscure They Learned About Women was a dance number featuring Nina Mae McKinney
3 February 2019 | by tavmSee all my reviews

I only just found out about this obscure movie after looking at the filmography of Nina Mae McKinney on this site and then looking at the Google Videos list to find out where I could see it online. I'll just now say that Ms. McKinney does a great dance to the "Harlem Madness" number surrounded by lots of men and other women-presumably all of her race and not just people in burnt cork-as well as one girl-possibly a teen-whose name is presumably lost in the wind. The rest of the movie-about a couple of baseball player friends who moonlights in vaudeville during the off-season with one of them involved with a girl who goes to the other one after her previous one finds another and breaks up with her-is quite involving. So in summary, They Learned About Women was a fine drama with good music and some good comedy, as well!
