If you don’t have tickets for the Sunday afternoon game between the Indians and the Tigers, here’s something fun you can do instead. On Sunday at 1 p.m., the Cleveland Museum of Art is showing the 1949 film “The Kid from Cleveland,” a fictional story about a troubled teenage boy who somehow becomes “adopted” by the 1948 Cleveland Indians. The film was shot on location at Cleveland Stadium, League Park, Public Square, and the museum itself. Long out of print, the film was recently re-released on DVD and Blu-ray.
The teenage boy was portrayed by Rusty Tamblyn, who later dropped the nickname, and is better known today as Russ Tamblyn. Tamblyn, who has worked as an actor and choreographer for the past 68 years, will be on hand at the museum for the screening, and will presumably spend some time discussing his experiences making the film.
