A League Of Their Own One Of The Best Movies

Filled under:

In the farm of Oregon Dottie Hinson and Kit Keller are working on the farm. Sisters that do love each other, except when it comes to baseball. Kit wants to play in the league but is upset to hear that it is Dottie who is chosen to play for the AAGPBL. (All American Girls Professional Baseball League) Dottie refuses to play unless Kit can come along. AAGPBL was only made because of the World War II and all of the man were in the war. Along the way to the stadium they meet Marla Hooch who is a great hitter, but to most people not the prettiest girl. When they are going to try out they meet Doris and Mae because Doris threw a baseball at Dottie who caught it impressing Doris. They girls find out their new manager is Jimmy Dugan. Jimmy Dugan drinks a lot and is the worst manager until Dottie get through to him and he becomes a better person. Miss Cuthbert makes sure the rules are followed, no boys Written by Silver Moon Sparkling.

Galileo enters every "trade" only after declaring the odds under which it will pull out. Since betting odds change throughout the course of a game based on the score or a team's momentum—much like a stock price during trading hours—Galileo's employees preordain when to either walk away or cut their losses. (There are no penalties for exiting a trade.) For example, after betting against a draw result (not counting extra time or penalty kicks, which create separate markets) in the recent World Cup contest between England and Germany, Galileo successfully pulled out of the trade soon after Germany went up 2-0. So far, so good: According to Hargraves, the fund's winnings during the first 19 days of the World Cup increased its coffers by 8.58 percent.

A League of their Own was one of the best movies I've ever had the pleasure to see. I had seen it years ago and recently bought my own copy of it. This movie is one of the best that Penny Marshall has ever directed. The casting was superb. Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell were perfect as street-wise, but loveable May and Doris! Geena Davis did a wonderful job playing Dottie Henson, who had a genuine love for the game, yet had responsibilities and priorities that were more important to her. Lori Petty was great as Kit, Dottie's little sister who fought so hard to get out from under her sister's shadow. Marla Hooch, what a great character!! Evelyn and her little boy Stillwell "Angel" will keep you in smiling all the time you want to bean him with a baseball bat. Ellen Sue, Helen, Betty Spaghetti, I feel like I know them all!! And Tom Hanks plays one of his best roles ever, as Jimmy Duggan, an ex-ball player turned coach. Not too thrilled with the job of coaching "girls".


He film was released on July 1, 1992, and was 1 by its second weekend (July 10–12).It was a commercial success, making $107 million in the United States on a $40 million budget (and an additional $25 million worldwide), and was well-received by critics.Many small scenes that revealed the backgrounds of players were cut. Among them was a scene before the first game in which Marla receives a package from her father, who has spent a whole week's salary to buy a new glove for her. Another deleted scene later shows her mailing the money back to him. A scene involving Mae Mordabito explaining to Doris Murphy that she wishes her mother could see her play ends with Doris asking how many months her mother has before she is released (it's hinted that Mae's mother is a prostitute). Also there was scene in which Ellen Sue Gotlander described her beauty queen background and how her talent specialty was to throw around fire batons.
