| Top of the Line Baseball FIlm - Pride of St. Louis
Ok, so this is not as good as Pride of the Yankees; just like the Cardinals are not as great as the Yankee franchise. But as far as the National League goes, the Cardinals are the best of the bunch.; better than the Giants, Dodgers, or Cubs. They have more World Series rings to prove it, too. This film is very close to Pride of the Yankees in several ways. Gehrig caught a bad break with his terrible disease, and Dean had a magnificent career cut short by a stroke of horrible luck from a line drive to the most pivotal part of a pitcher's body, the big toe. Simply put, if you land the wrong way on your foot and toe, the arm will quickly go to pot. At least Gehrig got to play fifteen years with the Yankees before his unfortunate end. The injury to Dean happened just a few years into his career. The acting in this film is very good; as are all the supporting cast members and especially the dialogue. Dean' s rebirth and affirmation as the best color man in baseball history is readily apparent in the film. Only Phil Rizzuto came close as an unforgettable color announcer. A must see film for every baseball fan.
