a very sentimental movie for me
24 August 2005 | by lammsfSee all my reviews

I was an "extra" in the movie, which was filmed at the end of street where I lived,near Hough Ave. It was very near League Park, at other end of my street! Some of the the kids in neighborhood were also in the movie, of course we were all not paid but did have a lot of fun with the "stars" and were treated to a ballgame, taken by bus, where we ran around under the bleachers. Have seen it a couple of times on AMC, but not in about last 6 yrs. or so. Was a bit of a "tearjerker" as brought back many memories of the days after WW11 and the pride we in Cleveland had, and I still have, for our Indians. Would love to have a copy,mainly to see if I could find myself among the kids. Can't find any on-line. Thanks for memories!
