REVIEWS:





"The Stratton Story tells a touching, human story of triumph over crushing odds with a warmth and sensitive appreciation for sentiment that is all too seldom encountered on the screen. .... [James] Stewart gives...a winning performance...playing the role of the Chicago White Sox pitcher whose
bright future was suddenly and tragically darkened by adversity in 1938. ....
Monty Stratton is one of the few living persons to have his life
dramatized by Hollywood. Moreover, he is that even rarer individual
who may view with pride the manner in which his story has been set
before the world to bring comfort and courage to the afflicted and
to remind the rest of us just how well off we are."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; May 13, 1949
