The Pride of the Yankees ★★★

Reasons to watch this film:

1) If You love baseball and baseball history
2) For the gorgeous lighting in part due to the work of the great Rudolph Maté
3) For the wholesomely adorable romance of Teresa Wright and Gary Cooper — Teresa Wright has to be one of the most underrated, lovely actresses of the Golden Age

But other than that this film is pretty run of the mill. The narrative structure and pacing is pretty light and skeletal. Not a bad time tho. That is all.
