Reviews for The Stratton Story

Review - Stratton Story, The

I've seen this movie before, or it sure seemed like I have. Brave hero fights back from adversity with the help of his unfailingly-happy wife. It was corny, but that's to be expected. It's major defect was the total inability of Jimmy Stewart to look like a baseball player.
