The Natural – Best Sports Movie Ever?

Do you remember this 1984 film starring Robert Redford?    The Natural has to be my favorite sports movie and surely one of my top 10 favorite films of all time.

It just brings up so many positive emotions in me, each time I watch it.

Enjoy the final scene, the big game ending home run, by clicking on the You Tube link below.  (5 mintues long)

Think of all the stars that were in this picture:   Redford, Glenn Close,  a young Kim Basinger, Barbara Hershey, Robert Duval, Darren McGavin, Wilford Brimley and Richard Farnsworth.

I’m sad to report that McGavin and Farnsworth are no longer with us.      Sadly, Farnsworth (whom you may also remember from the Anne of Green Gables series), committed suicide in the year 2000.
