Episode 32: Pride of the Yankees and The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings
Get your peanuts and Cracker Jack ready as The George Sanders Show celebrates Opening Day of baseball season with a look at two classic films about the National Pastime, Sam Wood's Lou Gehrig biopic Pride of the Yankees from 1942, and John Badham's 1976 tale of the Negro Leagues, The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings. They'll also pick their Essential Baseball Movies, celebrate (once again) the work of Akira Kurosawa on the occasion of his 104th birthday, and share their thoughts on the latest from Taiwanese auteur Tsai Ming-liang, Charles Schulz in 3D and Nymphomaniac-watching babies. Play Ball!
