I absolutely adore A League of Their Own and I have a soft spot for Renaissance Man starring Danny Devito.

That's one of my favorite movies ever.

She was a great filmmaker, this is sad.

A League Of Their Own is 26 years old. It hasn't aged a day since its release. It's probably my number two baseball movie at this point and by the time I'm 40 it may be #1.

Big all day, every day is a special movie to me. As a child I loved it from the "whoa that'd be cool" angle. As an adult, I appreciate it from a completely different angle but still love it.

That a movie can hold up from two different aged view points is a great compliment, I believe.

I remember seeing her on camera at Lakers and Clippers games the last few years and she looked very unhealthy.
