OP/H Taylor, Ray, dir
. 1938. VHS.
A urban-cowboy flick starring
Gehrig, with Smith Ballew. Face-wrinkling awful, but it's cheap, and you can see and hear Gehrig
. Interestingly enough,
Rawhides online sales rank is nearly as high as A Love Affair
's (20,000+); the only problem is that actually obtaining

OP/H $ Wood, Sam, dir. The Pride of the Yankees. 1943.
Buy your DVD in Shop MoreGehrig You're not a Gehrig fan if you haven't seen this movie. Still available in some video rental stores and online shops/auctions,
finding a copy for sale is easy, but the price to-be-paid is substantial (upwards of $40). Considered by many to be one
of the all-time best baseball movies. Gary Cooper plays Gehrig, even though pretty-boy could not throw or hit a baseball;
Babe Ruth also appears as himself (yippee). Teresa Wright plays Eleanor Gehrig. Shows a very human side to Gehrig; Cooper
and Wright get slightly jiggy with it at one point. Reportedly, Gehrig's voice is used during the farewell speech scene. One
of my favorite things about this movie is how it butchers the myth that Babe hit a homerun for a hospitalized boy by showing
Gehrig as the true hero to the little boy. Buy your DVD version of Pride of the Yankees
