A League of Their Own

Directed by Penny Marshall 
(USA, 1992, digital)
Introduced by author Grant Wiedenfeld*

30th Anniversary Revival

As young men head to fight in World War II, a publicity-hungry tycoon (Garry Marshall) funds an all-female pro baseball league and hires a grumpy has-been coach (Tom Hanks) as a manager. Two sisters (Geena Davis and Lori Petty) join the team and struggle to help it succeed amidst their own growing rivalry. The cast of A League of Their Own also includes Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell.
