THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES Lou Gehrig, Gary Cooper, and the Making of a Classic

by | Read by Kevin Stillwell

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The author dives into the making of the classic 1942 baseball movie PRIDE OF THE YANKEES, about New York Yankees great Lou Gehrig. The book details the choices for the actors, alternative scenes, cutting-room floor material, and the involvement of Gehrig's wife, Eleanor. Kevin Stillwell narrates straightforwardly throughout, except when it comes to Gehrig's mother and the German-born actress who played her in the movie. It's a serious narration, clearly done and appropriate for the work. The movie has survived generations because of Gehrig's iconic 1939 "luckiest man" speech, which even those who don't know the history of baseball are familiar with.
