The Pride of the Yankees (1942)
A great film about a great ballplayer
"The Pride of the Yankees" was a great film about one of the greatest baseball players of all-time who's life and career ended much too early. Lou Gehrig's life and struggles with his muscular disease are told very well in this film and Gary Cooper, one of the greatest actors in Hollywood history, plays the character of Gehrig perfectly. Babe Ruth and Bill Dickey are among a few actual major league baseball player to appear in this film. Sam Wood did a fabulous job as director of this film and Jo Swerling and Herman J. Mankiewicz wrote a beautiful screenplay. "The Pride of the Yankees" is right up there with "Field of Dreams", "A League of Their Own", and "Major League" as the greatest baseball movies of all-time.
