Description
An Academy Award winner for best screenplay (by Douglas Morrow), this 1949 film tells the true story of Monty Stratton (James Stewart), a Major League Baseball pitcher who played for the Chicago White Sox from 1934 to 1938. In late 1938, Stratton shot himself in the right knee in a hunting accident, and amputation of his leg was necessary to save his life. In 1946, he had a career comeback in the East Texas League, playing and winning 18 games with an artificial limb. Stratton was convinced to let his story be filmed to encourage disabled veterans of World War II, and he was overjoyed with the choice of Jimmy Stewart (who put in five hours a day with various big leaguers perfecting his pitching). The film was major hit and remains one of the most compelling and inspiring sports biographies of all time.
