THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES (Theatrical Release USA 1942)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Pride of the Yankees—little gem, easy to miss—brings attention to the disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), but places the main focus on the life of Lou Gehrig from his early years to his retirement.
