More on A league of their own special edition
As Madonna Tribe told its readers a while ago, the new Dvd Edition of “A League of their own” will contain a lot of interesting bonuses. Here’s a new press release from Columbia/Tristar about this collector’s edition:
A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, the beloved hit film that taught America that “there’s no crying in baseball,” will be coming home on a brand-new two-disc Special Edition DVD packed with bonus features including a director’s commentary from Penny Marshall and cast members including Lori Petty, Negan Cavanagh and Tracy Reiner, deleted scenes, a “making of” documentary and Madonna’s music video, “This Used to Be My Playground.”
A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION will be available April 20 from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.
A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION was a special labor of love for director Penny Marshall, who took a hands-on role in its production. It was Ms. Marshall who developed the bonus features, selected deleted scenes and assembled the participating cast members – a truly personal touch that is reflected in this affectionate and thoughtful look at one of America’s favorite films.
Tom Hanks (Road to Perdition), Geena Davis (Stuart Little 1 & 2), Rosie O’ Donnell (Sleepless in Seattle) and Madonna (Die Another Day) star in this major league comedy from the team that brought you Big. Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ballplayer whose big league days are over.
Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943 while the male pros are at war, Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his all-girl team. Jon Lovitz (Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star) adds a scene-stealing cameo as the sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), the baseball dolly with a Babe Ruth swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O’Donnell round out the roster, taking the team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail, on the fields and off, for generations of athletes.
