The Pride of the Yankees

The Pride of the Yankees is a beloved American sports film that was released in 1942. Directed by Sam Wood, the movie tells the touching true story of baseball legend Lou Gehrig, brilliantly portrayed by Gary Cooper.

Cooper's performance as Gehrig is nothing short of extraordinary. He fully captures the essence of the iconic New York Yankees first baseman, showcasing Gehrig's determination, strength, and most importantly, his unwavering love for the game of baseball. Cooper's portrayal earned him an Academy Award nomination, solidifying his position as one of Hollywood's most respected actors of the time.

Joining Cooper in the cast is the exceptional Teresa Wright, who plays Gehrig's supportive and loving wife, Eleanor. Wright brings grace and empathy to her character, creating a heartwarming dynamic between her and Cooper on-screen. Together, they convey the deep bond shared by the real-life couple as they face the challenges brought on by Gehrig's diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The film brilliantly chronicles Gehrig's journey from his humble beginnings to becoming one of baseball's greatest players. It highlights his legendary streak of 2,130 consecutive games played, a record that remained unbroken for decades. The Pride of the Yankees showcases Gehrig's incredible skills on the field, while also delving into the personal sacrifices he made to pursue his passion for baseball.

The movie not only focuses on Gehrig's incredible career but also authentically portrays the emotional toll inflicted by his tragic illness. Through its heartfelt storytelling, The Pride of the Yankees offers a poignant tribute to Gehrig's legacy, reminding viewers of the strength and determination of the human spirit.

As you watch the film, you'll be transported back to the era of classic baseball. The sounds of the roaring crowds, the crack of the bat, and the joyous cheers fill the air, immersing you in the magic of the sport. You can experience these sounds firsthand by playing and downloading them here.

The Pride of the Yankees, with its stellar performances and powerful storytelling, remains a timeless classic that continues to inspire audiences to this day. While it celebrates Gehrig's remarkable achievements, it never fails to remind us of the importance of cherishing every moment we have and pursuing our dreams relentlessly.

So, sit back, relax, and relish this extraordinary journey through the life and career of one of baseball's greatest legends. The Pride of the Yankees boldly reminds us of the values that sport and determination can instill in us all.

A ballplayer is a lot like a sailor, isn't he?
A ballyhoo to get more money out of the Yanks...
A companion for fife...
A disgrace like that.
A girl in every port. What's Miss Boston's name?
A girl's got to breathe.
A great big, famous person like you?
A great halfback.
A guy like that is a detriment to any sport. He's a boob with a batting eye.
A guy with a wife like you.
A janitor. A cook.
A man from the Yankees is looking for you.
A rookie. Come on, let's play ball!
A smile all over the faces of the New York Yankees.
A wonderful country where everybody has an equal chance.
A young fellow nowadays...
About Hartford....
About what?
After all my plans for you to follow after your Uncle Otto.
After that second home run for Billy, that little boy in the hospital.
All aboard.
All of you.
All right, gents, it's only a nickel.
All right, here we go.
All right, if that's the way you feel about it.
All right, Papa.
All right, pitch to me, now.
All right, we're even.
All right.
All right.
All right.
All the arguing in the world can't change the decision of the umpire.
All the city hospitals are free.
All the things we've never had time for before.
All this time, you were saying how hungry you are.
Always.
Am I still your best girl?
An automobile or a yacht, or the Statue of Liberty. I'd better go.
And a solid background in my youth.
And am I glad to get out of the lumber business.
And be an engineer like your Uncle Otto.
And he falls down on the bats pretty good, too, Dad.
And he has to be our baker.
And I left my little world behind me.
And I'm dancing with someone else.
And I'm laughing again.
And I'm not kidding.
And I've learned one thing.
And I've never received anything but...
And mushrooms.
And nobody can make anything but a ballplayer out of me.
And playing with these men on my right...
And so is that chifforobe.
And tell him to stop fooling.
And this is good bye?
And those are not the players?
And what's more, Billy, I'm going to hit a home run for you this afternoon...
And what's more, you can pick your own field...
And when I get it, I'm supposed to give it to my best girl.
And yet, it's something that, if you don't handle it right....
And you're out with me here tonight. Isn't that what best girls do?
Any facts Ruth dreams up will be topped by Lou Gehrig...
Any worse than that?
Anybody home?
Are you going to remember me, Lou?
Are you in Detroit?
Are you putting the jinx on him?
Aren't you going to ask me to dance?
Aren't you gonna read what you're signing?
Aren't you my girl?
Around home plate, all the celebrities standing there.
At 4:00 in the morning?
Athletes do everything well.
Atlantic City would be a good place.
Babe Ruth is pretty good, too.
Babe Ruth.
Babe walks over and puts his arms around Gehrig's shoulders.
Ball three.
Ball two.
Ball!
Ball!
Ball!
Baseball life is so different. Sort of a little world all by itself.
Baseball.
Batting average, home runs...
Because that's something that belongs to just the two of us.
Because they're like you.
Because they're like you.
Because you've given me so much.
Better get to the clubhouse, have the doc look at you.
Better take me out, Miller.
Bill Church, Sam Price...
Bill.
Boys, where's Lou? Did he get on the train all right?
Brought you back a ball used in the third game.
Bulletin. Gehrig Day not a farewell but a come on.
But a guy who does his job and nothing else.
But a Newfoundland puppy...
But beggars can't be choosers.
But Gehrig has promised two home runs for that kid. Can he do it?
But how many Lou Gehrigs are there?
But how?
But I convinced her that pattern was better. More practical.
But I just can't get over how wonderful everything is with my husband.
But I just couldn't stand it another minute.
But I warn you, all you'll get is a horseshoe of roses.
But I'd like to have these...
But it doesn't mean he gets home in 20 minutes.
But it seems such a waste of time. I want to talk to you.
But Louie, suppose she finds out? What about me?
But one thing I don't understand.
But the mater won't let me.
But today...
But you and Lou, why, all you've got to do is sit pretty and smile.
But you've already been promised one by Babe Ruth.
But...
By the boys up there behind the wire in the press box...
By the end of next season, you can finish up in Chicago...
Can't you read between the lines what I'm saying?
Carried.
Chicago? Who?
Close my eyes, and pretend it's tomorrow night...
Come back here and get an apartment, fix it up, then we'll get married.
Come in.
Come on, butterfingers.
Come on, hit it.
Come on.
Come on. Ante up.
Come on. Three strikes and he's out.
Congratulations.
Could you knock a home run for me this afternoon?
Could you knock two homers?
Could you?
Dad was right.
Dahlgren, get in there at first.
Dahlgren...
Dance with me?
Darling, the verdict's in.
Deal me in.
Did you realize, this is my last night in Chicago this season?
Did you?
Digging ditches, that's all he ever did.
Do you think we can get $50,000 out of those tightwads?
Do you think your mother likes me?
Do you want to get pinched for holding up traffic?
Doc, I've learned one thing.
Don't be so cynical.
Don't disappoint the little lady. Come right over, step right up.
Don't disappoint the little lady. There you are.
Don't know, but I'll hit ‘em and you count ‘em.
Don't let him eat too many, he'll get fat.
Don't look too hard.
Don't say anything about this to Mama.
Don't talk like that. You know Lou is true blue.
Don't talk to me, you Borgia.
Don't tell me you have forgotten what day this is?
Don't worry, you're bound to run into Eleanor one day.
Don't you remember me?
Don't you see, Louie?
Don't you want to be an engineer like your Uncle Otto?
Don't you want to dance with me?
Don't you want to see me shoot?
Dreadful, isn't it? I seem to have tied a label on that rookie.
Each one has knocked out a home run...
Eleanor.
Ellie, if you are looking for a chifforobe...
Engineer.
Engineering.
Enjoying your stay in Chicago?
Especially to you sportswriters.
Even though we never had a honeymoon?
Every ballplayer has a slump eventually, but in this case, it isn‘t just a slump.
Everybody treats me like a queen.
Everyone is here to show him just what they feel in their hearts.
Everything all right, Lou?
Everything's going so fine now.
Excuse me, Lou.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
Fame and undeserved praise...
Farley shakes Gehrig's hand, Gehrig again trying to manage a smile.
Fifty five to be exact, Officer.
Fifty miles an hour on a thoroughfare.
Fifty million other people get a lot of fun out of him...
Finally l said, "Look, Boss, this is Lou Gehrig's birthday."
First Columbia, then a fraternity, and the next thing, you will be an engineer.
First, I want to know all about you.
Folks, this is going to be a great day for little Billy in the hospital.
Football? For a kid that can hit a baseball this far?
For what? To play ball.
From now on, they'll have to spell Gehrig's name in capital letters.
From you fans.
Gehrig booted the game. Threw it down the drain.
