Millions thrilled to baseball player Lou Gehrig’s run with the New York Yankees, and millions more were moved by his brave battle with ALS. This home-run inspirational biopic scored 11 Oscar nominations, including for Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright as Lou and wife Eleanor; Daniel Mandell won for editing. Paying tribute to their late teammate, several real-life Yankee players back up Cooper, notably another legend who would be gone too soon—Babe Ruth.
