Hi,

A long, long time ago I remember seeing a movie (old then) about Lou Gehrig. I think Burt Lancaster played the part but I am not positive. I would like to know the name of it so I can search for it, because I would like to see it again. Can you help me? I just want to know the title of the movie.

    Hello

    The film you are thinking of is The Pride of The Yankees (1942), which starred Gary Cooper in the role of Lou Gehrig. This film is readily available on both VHS and DVD. Pride of the Yankees was a biographical movie. This outstanding movie was released the year after Gehrigs death, the first baseman of Yankees. The story revels around this young guy and story takes different interesting turns.

    According to a magazine in its interesting review about the Pride of the Yankees in 1942 the film in was called it a "stirring epitaph" and a "sentimental, romantic saga. And no one can deny it.

    There was also a TV movie made in 1978 called A Love Affair the Eleanor and Lou Gehrig Story. This starred Edward Herrman as Gehrig and Blythe Danner as his wife, Eleanor. This has also been available on VHS. I think your query is solved now. I hope you are satisfied now. Just watch it again, as now you come to know the real title of the movie.

    Glad to be of help.

    Cheers.
