Fast Company is a 1929 American Pre-Code comedy film directed by A. Edward Sutherland and starring Jack Oakie and Evelyn Brent.[1]


Egomaniacal baseball slugger Elmer Kane is not only good, he enjoys telling everybody how good he is. A professional scout, Bert Wade, takes an interest in Elmer, who in turn takes an interest in Evelyn Corey, an attractive actress.

Wade cons the ballplayer into thinking the actress is falling for him, which inspires a home run from Elmer to win the big game.
