Editors Note
Note Director Sam Wood's final film presents the real-life story of courageous sports hero Monty Stratton. Jimmy Stewart presents a career-defining performance as the young Chicago White Sox pitcher who loses a leg in a tragic hunting accident. Depressed, Stratton at first refuses to walk with his new artificial limb, but under the encouragement of his wife, Ethel (June Allyson), he relearns to walk just as his young son takes his own first steps. With courage and determination, Stratton builds his strength and returns to the sport at which he excelled, becoming a minor league star. This uplifting story avoids becoming maudlin by virtue of Wood's excellent directing, a truly beautiful performance from Jimmy Stewart, an Academy Award-winning script from Douglas Morrow and Guy Trosper, and the very real chemistry between Stewart and actress Allyson.

Reviews
ReviewSource Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Review The film offers no surprises, but baseball fans might enjoy seeing some of the stars from the 1930s in action. The athletes include the great Yankee catcher Bill Dickey, and there's a shot of Joltin' Joe DiMaggio rounding the bases after hitting a homer. The film is a reminder of a more innocent time when baseball was the national pasttime.
