Cold weather got you down? Can’t wait for spring training? Relive the glory days of baseball to warm your heart with four classic (old!) baseball films. The films scheduled at this time are not the most obvious ones, but are ranked high on the enjoyment and thinking lists for both serious and casual fans, with themes beyond the sport and into our lives. Scheduled: Pride of the Yankees (1942), directed by Sam Wood, the award winning story of Lou Gehrig and ALS, starring Gary Cooper and Theresa Wright; Angels in the Outfield (1951), directed by Clarence Brown, a comedy about determination and a team of destiny visited by angels, of course, with Paul Douglas and Janet Leigh; It Happens Every Spring (1949), directed by Lloyd Bacon, which explores a common professor becoming a star player, using science, starring Ray Milland; and Bang the Drum Slowly (1973), directed by John Hancock, which takes a serious look at life and death through the lens of a baseball friendship, featuring Robert De Niro and Michael Moriarty. Discussion will follow each film.
