Bang the Drum sad but corny
Th?r 1 are some movies that are so
nice, so harm less and often so well
receiv?d by the public that a person
can nuts trying to say something
critically intelligent about them.
B-jog the Drum Slowly is one of
these rroviei. It is the story of a big
'.''i'3:J3 b.tsel).i!l catcher who is dying of
Movigkin's Urease. It is obviously so
rphtc vvith tenderness, sadness,
rifcart'jriks, -jtc, that it would be
cri:-;.t for tno reviewer to give detailed
'-lot i-.i,T.-viry and finish by calling it
"a t2u:hi.i-; charming little jewel..
R-V'j ():? Drwv i; certainly more
!;tert. thj i Lo'.v Story, and dl though
;-: -np. n't a:, noviny as television's
Dn.::i's Song, it is a better cinematic
L,k.; it., prjj.ji'ce'sors, the tragedy of
t:,e ,;it.iHion is emotionally portrayed
through j clos? f, i?nd left behind.
The victim is Bruce Pearson
((;..! Kit De Niiroj, a backward country
Doy wno greases his hair in a
pompadour and is constantly chawing
and spitting tobacco. His faithful
friend Henry Wiggins, (Michael
Moriarty) is a tall, handsome stud.
At the start of the baseball season,
Pearson is a laughed-at and heckled
third-string catcher. But after the team
finds out about his sickness, he
becomes a starter and miraculously the
team pulls together and makes it to
the World Series.
Because of its well-handled and
humorous look at the world inside the
dugout, Bang the Drum Slowly is a
better baseball story than a tear jeikor.
