A 1949 Re-Release Vintage Theatrical Movie One-sheet (Learn More)

The Pride of the Yankees (The Life of Lou Gehrig), the classic 1942 Sam Wood New York City baseball sports biography melodrama ("It's the great American story"; "The crowd worshiped him... one woman understood him!"; "Intimate and thrilling drama of a hero of the headlines... the girl who had his love and shared his life, but dared not question his one secret"; "Heart-warming, human, thrilling dramatic is this true story of a public hero's private life... and the secret he kept from the only woman who really understood him. You'll hail it as another great Samuel Goldwyn production!"; "Original Story by Paul Gallico"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; based on the life of famed New York Yankees baseball player, Lou Gehrig) starring Gary Cooper (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film, as Lou Gehrig), Teresa Wright (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film, as Eleanor Gehrig), Babe Ruth (playing himself!), Walter Brennan, Dan Duryea, Veloz & Yolanda, Hardie Albright, Ray Noble and His Orchestra, Elsa Janssen (as Lou Gehrig's mother), Ludwig Stossel (as Lou Gehrig's father), and Harry Harvey. Note that in addition to Babe Ruth, several famous Yankee baseball players appeared as themselves, notably Bill Dickey, Bob Meusel, Mark Koenig, and Bill Stern! Also note that there is a fascinating "urban legend" about this movie! Lou Gehrig was a legendary left-handed baseball player (southpaw) and Gary Cooper was right-handed, and when the movie was about to come out, Samuel Goldwyn had publicity stating that he had hired legendary southpaw Lefty O'Doul to teach Cooper how to bat and throw left-handed, and that it took two months. But then, right before the movie opened, there were several articles in leading publications stating that this was a lie, and that Cooper couldn't learn how to do it, so they had him wear a special jersey with reversed lettering, and then they let him bat and throw right-handed, and then "reversed" the film! Everyone believed this until 2013, when a researcher discovered that it was not true at all, and that Cooper had, in fact, thrown and batted left-handed (one of the easy ways to prove this was that in some of the shots, many other players were shown, and they would have had to all be wearing these "reversed" jerseys, which made no sense!).
