This is not so much a "great baseball movie" as it is a great movie about a guy who happened to be a great baseball player and an outstanding human being. Pick all the nits you like about the baseball scenes - and there are many, many nits to pick, starting with the awkward fact that the star, Gary Cooper, was a righthander who knew little about the game (Gehrig was a lefty, as the script most unwisely belabors in one "comic-relief" scene). The movie stands or falls on how well the core of the character, Lou Gehrig, is displayed on the screen - and on that score it stands tall, very tall. Gary Cooper had a rare and special talent: the ability to portray Good as a strong positive force rather than passive absence of evil intent. No one has ever done it better. It did sharply limit his range - there were roles he could not take, and some he did take that he shouldn't have. But within those limitations he was masterful, and never more so than in this film.
