Nice list, someone ought to do a baseball film festival. (There was one in Fayetteville a couple of years ago.) . . .

That’s a very good idea.  I wonder if the good folks at Market Street Cinema would be up for it?  Perhaps it could be organize in conjunction with the opening of Dickey-Stephens Park?  Or roped into the Arkansas Literary Festival?  Too bad the Center Theatre renovations never took off.  The National Baseball Hall of Fame hosted a film festival in November.  Surely David Pincus, co-editor of “Reel Baseball” who is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Arkansas would be interested. 


PM also hates “The Babe.”
