    Considered one of the greatest baseball films ever made, this is the moving true story of New York Yankee immortal Lou Gehrig, the southpaw slugger who rose to the very top of the sport, only to be cut down at the peak of his career by an incurable illness.

    This one goes on the mandatory buy list. I can't wait for some of the other classic baseball movies. Most notably "The Monty Stratton Story".

    Finally in B&W! I preordered from DVDEmpire for $9.27 shipped. Looks like September is going to be another big month for new titles.

    Hopefully this DVD will contain an apology for the previous (colorized) version.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Oscar. This is another title to put on my lengthy to-buy list. [​IMG]

    I had no idea there was already another thread going on.
    Can anybody explain why it is such an important movie ?
