Nick Nolte, one of the biggest male stars at the time, turned down the lead because he had just finished several movies back-to-back, and, most importantly, because he isn't a fan of baseball. Nolte famously played a footballer in North Dallas Forty (1979), a movie he co-wrote. See more »
Near the end of the film when Annie is returning home (the old James Manning house at 911 N. Mangum Street in Durham) from the ballpark in the rain (umbrella in hand) and sees Crash on her porch swing, Annie approaches her house from the north, the wrong direction. The old Durham Athletic Park, where the film was shot, is located in the 500-block of W. Corporation Street which is south and west of the house. See more »
'Bull Durham' is A Complete Entertainer, That Easily is among THE Best Sport-Centric Films-Ever. Ron Shelton's Screenplay & Direction, both, are very-well done, while the Performances, are remarkable.
'Bull Durham' Synopsis: Crash" Davis, a veteran catcher is brought in to teach rookie pitcher Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh about the game in preparation for reaching the Major Leagues, While, Baseball groupie Annie Savoy romances Nuke but finds herself increasingly attracted to Crash.
'Bull Durham' is humorous, energetic & most of all, entertaining. The film wonderfully grabs your attention. Ron Shelton's Screenplay is a great blend of energy & humor. His direction, on the other-hand, is very-well done. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are nice.
Performance-Wise: Kevin Costner delivers a terrific performance. The actor sinks his teeth into the part & brings it out with flying colors. Susan Sarandon, as always, is fabulous. Tim Robbins suits his part perfectly. Trey Wilson does well. William O'Leary is as usual.
On the whole, 'Bull Durham' is A Complete Entertainer.
