The Coop mannerisms aren't really suited to Gehrig, but he gives a typically sympathetic performance alongside Wright and real-life stars such as Babe Ruth.

Maté achieves exhilaration from his angle shooting and the feeling throughout out of a concave screen. Whatever feel of baseball this picture has is the result of his running camera.

Gary Cooper gives a splendid, Oscar-nominated performance as lou Gehrig in Sam Wood's nostalgic but touching biopic of the Iron man, first baseman of the NY Yankess.

For baseball and non-baseball fan alike, this sentimental, romantic saga of the NY kid who rose to the baseball heights and later met such a tragic end is well worth seeing.

As a simple, moving story with an ironic heart-tug at the end, it serves as a fitting memorial to the real Lou, who called himself the luckiest man alive.

First-rate biopic, though Cooper is hard-pressed to sell Gehrig as a college student.
