    A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN: TWO DISC SPECIAL EDITION

    Crossing Home Plate April 20

    Culver City, CA (February 9, 2004) - A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, the beloved hit
    film that taught America that "there's no crying in baseball," will be coming home on a brand-
    new two-disc Special Edition DVD packed with bonus features including a director's
    commentary from Penny Marshall and cast members including Lori Petty, Negan Cavanagh and
    Tracy Reiner, deleted scenes, a "making of" documentary and Madonna's music video, "This
    Used to Be My Playground." A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION
    will be available April 20 from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

    A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION was a special labor of
    love for director Penny Marshall, who took a hands-on role in its production. It was Ms.
    Marshall who developed the bonus features, selected deleted scenes and assembled the
    participating cast members - a truly personal touch that is reflected in this affectionate and
    thoughtful look at one of America's favorite films.


    Tom Hanks (Road to Perdition), Geena Davis (Stuart Little 1 & 2), Rosie O' Donnell
    (Sleepless in Seattle) and Madonna (Die Another Day) star in this major league comedy from the
    team that brought you Big. Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ballplayer whose big
    league days are over.

    Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943 while the male pros
    are at war, Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his all-girl
    team. Jon Lovitz (Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star) adds a scene-stealing cameo as the
    sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), the baseball dolly with a Babe Ruth
    swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell round out the roster, taking the
    team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail,
    on the fields and off, for generations of athletes.

    Digitally Mastered Audio and Anamorphic Video
    Widescreen and Full Screen Presentations

    Thanks Ron, [​IMG]
    This has been one of my favorites for many years.

    I showed most of this film many years ago in my high school Geometry classes. I'd show the 2.35:1 LD version along with the 4:3 VHS version, (both at the same time).

    Believe it or not, I used this as part of a lesson in ratio and proportion. Of course the kids loved it. Back then, many of the kids could not believe what they were missing with the "mainstream" VHS pan-and-scan version.

    I remember when Penny Marshall was on The Rosie O'Donnell show a few years ago and she mentioned that this was in the works. It must have taken a long time to get the extras together.
