Biopic traces the life of Lou Gehrig, famous baseball player who played in 2130 consecutive games before falling at age 37 to ALS, a deadly nerve disease which now bears his name. Gehrig is followed from his childhood in New York until his famous 'Luckiest Man' speech at his farewell day in 1939.Written by

In a June 8, 1942 interview, Eleanor Gehrig (as Mrs. Lou Gehrig) told Louella Parsons that she was thrilled with the performance of Gary Cooper as her husband. After seeing the film, Mrs. Gehrig said, "Gary and Lou have the same expressions. They are the same type of man. Gary studied every picture of Lou's. He had everyone of his mannerisms down to a science and he is so like my husband in the picture that there were times when I felt I couldn't bear it." See more »
The representation of the Johnny Sylvester story line is full of errors.
Sylvester was in hospital in the New York area, not in St. Louis
Ruth's 1926 promise to Sylvester took place via mail.
The Cardinals, not the Yankees, won the 1926 World Series in 7 games (the final out was Babe Ruth caught stealing 2nd.)
In the 1926 World Series, Gehrig never homered.
In the 1928 World Series (also vs. St. Louis) Gehrig homered twice, but in Game 3, and in the 2nd and 4th innings--not in the 9th. He did not strike out that game.
In neither of the Cardinals-Yankees World Series in which Gehrig played was there a line score that read:
NATIONAL 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
NEW YORK 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 1
ST. LOUIS 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0
There was only one World Series game in which Babe Ruth homered and Gehrig hit two homers, the third game of the 1932 Series vs. the Cubs.
After seeing this movie, I went out and bought the Ken Burns documentary on Baseball. It's amazing how nice of a guy Lou Gherig was! He was a true gentleman. He brought his Mom to ALL THE GAMES. He was a true hero as well. I liked this movie and it was very sad to see Lou get stiff toward the end of the movie. Babe Ruth played himself and that was no hard task for him. I bought this movie it was so darn good.
