Brief Movie Synopsis [courtesy of Turner Classic Movies]:

Baseball legend Lou Gehrig faces a crippling
disease at the height of his success.






--------------------------------------------------------------------------

REVIEWS:





"In a simple, tender, meticulous and explicitly narrative film,
Mr. Goldwyn and his associates have told the story of Buster
Lou [Gehrig] with sincere and lingering affection. ....
As a baseball picture...'The Pride of the Yankees' is not
anything to raise the blood pressure. But as a simple, moving
story with an ironic heart tug at the end, it serves
as a fitting memorial to the real Lou."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; July 16, 1942
