The story of the life and career of famed baseball player Lou Gehrig.
Babe Ruth missed several days of shooting and filming during the production, because of his own illness.
All the arguing in the world can't change the decision of the umpire.
The second home run that Gehrig hits in the World Series game against St. Louis Cardinals (Gehrig promised a child in the hospital that he would hit two home runs) begins as a low line drive sinking as it passes the infield; it suddenly takes a different trajectory and becomes a home run.
The final opening credit card is shared by Director Sam Wood and Production Design by William Cameron Menzies.]
