Pass the popcorn: Uber-analyzing The Pride of the Yankees

February 11, 2013 · 0 comments

Last week I posted this entry on Tom Shieber’s frame-by-frame analysis to say “yea” or “nay” (sort of) to the urban legend that Gary Cooper’s baseball action while portraying Lou Gehrig was inverted since the actor was a natural righty (I wonder: there’s a scene where Gehrig is signing a ball for sick little Billy in the hospital. It never occurred to me to think about it, but does Cooper sign with his right or left hand?)

Anyway, where was I?

Oh yes, Richard Sandomir gives the Shieber investigation major play in this piece, published in the NY Times on Feb. 9.
