Free Flick of the Week: “The Pride of the Yankees”


Thanks to ongoing revelations about our athletic heroes – none of them good – I wouldn’t be surprised if we eventually learn that baseball’s Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig, was actually a jerk.  Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth … not guys you’d want to meet your mother.  But if you want to escape to an imaginary world where pro jocks are more saint than sinner, you can’t do better than The Pride of the Yankees, a 1942 biopic starring Gary Cooper as Gehrig.  Click here to watch it free.
