Having just watched "TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE" and living with MS myself,Lou Gehrig's account was a bit softened. His decisions & dynamics were very brave in an unacceptable situation & diagnosis. ALS was somewhat masked by other diseases with no notoriety. MS doesn't shut the organs down so I've had similar experiences over 30 years. I now live in a care facility,AKA Skilled Nursing Home,so my symptoms are monitored & medicated as they occur. Lou Gehrig was a Nationally acclaimed hero being watched under a microscope. His decisions where not his wish but his living nightmare.

I found "The Lou Gehrig story explained his demise in a way unknown to the baseball followers.

While it was a cast of B actors, it was well performed and would recommend to viewers who have an interest in the iconic Lou Gehrig. Well done.

Interesting and informative. We liked the movie Pride of the Yankees so we thought we would try the biography, filled in some gaps.

Was a pretty good story, but not as good as the Hollywood version. Still was an interesting version. Still worth watching.

I enjoy sports, and I really enjoy baseball.

This had many pictures of the old stadium, and the fans.

I would recommend this movie to anyone that likes sports.

A bit disappointing in that it seems to just gloss over this disease. The movie centers around a few days before he decides to bench himself and see a doctor, to SORT OF getting the diagnosis from the doctor (done in a very read between the lines of what I'm not saying) and then the day at the ballpark where he gives his famous speech - and I'm not sure it was even all of his speech, though it looked like it could've been an actual clip from the moment. This movie doesn't go into the progression of the disease, what he did with himself once he quit baseball, how long he lasted until it killed him...

Also - the actress who plays his wife (Jean Hagen) stunk. She was constantly blinking fast and making stupid looking faces (though maybe that was just her face).

Not a top notch movie...but it was ok. Unfortunately, this is the only movie on Lou Gehrig that Amazon seems to offer.

I would suggest instead that you watch the movie "The Pride of the Yankees (1942)" starring Gary Cooper (not available on Amazon at this time). There is another movie on him out there (also not on Amazon video but avail. for purchase as VHS) that I haven't seen yet, but hope to, entitled: "A Love Affair: the Eleanor and Lou Gehrig story" starring Blythe Danner as Eleanor.
