The Story Of Dizzy Dean
6 July 2010 | by (Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

It seems that 10 years later, someone decided to try to recapture what made "Pride of the Yankees" (the story of New York Yankee great Lou Gehrig) work so well, and so they decided to put out "The Pride of St. Louis" (the story of St. Louis Cardinal great Dizzy Dean.) Frankly, it didn't work as well.

It's an OK movie, but compared to "Pride of the Yankees" it's lacking. Some might argue that the comparison is unfair, but the similarity in name suggests that the comparison was on the minds of those who produced this movie. But this lacks the power of the previous movie. It lacks the star power (Dan Dailey, who played Dean, is certainly no Gary Cooper, who played Gehrig.) It also lacks the story power. Gehrig's story was just more dramatic and powerful. Gehrig died - Dean's arm went on him. I felt for him - and there was a pretty good depiction of the troubles Dean had accepting the end of his career - but I can't say that I was drawn into his story as I was into Gehrig's.
