Theresa Wright and Cooper elevate this rather by the numbers bio-pic. Has a few memorable scenes but doesnt really get going til the middle. Even though the slow start, it still turns out to be pretty good.
There are, in my opinion, two problems in this film: the dance number, totally useless, and Gary Cooper's way to play young Lou Gehrig as if he was in a comedy about a country simpleton coming to town. Already forgotten.
