Rawhide is a 1938 short western film starring Lou Gehrig. It was Gehrig's only film, and he plays a baseball player named Lou Gehrig who gives up his career to move to a cattle ranch out west.

Wow, this is quite an old film and I remember watching it a long time ago. For some reason I seem to think it may have singing in it ...lol 😉. Have a great new week! J 😊ReplyDelete
It's such a novelty, with Lou Gehrig playing himself in his only film. To think at that point he showed not the slightest sign of the illness that would kill him :(Delete
I really enjoyed this film. I liked how deadpan Gehrig was. I couldn't believe it was the baseball player playing himself. It was a joy to watch, and a pleasure to see this baseball great who suffered such a terrible fate a few years later. BTW, I was a HUGE Yankees fan in the late 70s and when I was out on my own in the 80s, did lots of research on many of the Yankee greats.ReplyDelete
I think his acting is good. Such a joy to see him so lively here with no knowledge of the tragedy waiting.Delete
