Movie Reviews

Great set for any baseball fan
Yankee Mike | Brooklyn,NY | 02/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great way to start off the new baseball season. Would be worth it just to own Larsen's Perfect game and the DVD includs the TV and Radio broadcasts of the game. Please take note. The first inning of this game is still "lost" so the TV game broadcast starts with the second batter in the top of the second inning."
Larsen's Perfect Game-A Lost Treasure Available At Last!
Eric Paddon | Morristown, NJ | 12/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THe previous reviewer should be ashamed of himself. This release is going to bring to DVD one of the lost treasures of baseball history the original TELECAST of Don Larsen's Perfect Game. And yet, he'd rather be petty with his stupid anti-Yankee bias to bitch about why some run of the mill game hasn't been released instead. For shame (maybe to match his standard we should condemn MLB for releasing the 1988 World Series??)"
One Gem Makes the Set a Grand Slam
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 05/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The six-disc set will warm up any chilled baseball fan at the start of the Hot Stove League season and is a gem for any fledgling diamond historian due to the inclusion of a perfect game tossed nearly 55 years ago. The blurry tape of the TV broadcast of Don Larsen's October 8, 1956, perfect game in the World Series versus the Brooklyn Dodgers is in terrible shape, but the athletic accomplishment remains one of the greatest ever in Major League Baseball.

The 12 hours and 33 minutes is a tour of masterpieces from aces of the New York Yankees and includes the perfect game from David Wells (1998) and the "comeback" to prominence of Dwight Gooden (1996). The set is outstanding because it allows the games to tell the story in feats that define pitching excellence...no matter the era or venue."
Amazon's description error
SonoraDick | Tucson, AZ USA | 07/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll give the product 5 stars, but want to point out an error Amazon made in their description of the product that was important to me.
First, I think the set itself deserves 5 stars. I have watched two of the games (Larsen & Righetti) completely, and scanned through each of the others enough so I feel qualified to review the set as a whole. There are some video imperfections in each, but never enough to spoil the game for me. The 1956 video was actually better than I expected given other reviews. I have no serious complaints about any of the games, & agree with others who felt the Larsen game alone is worth the purchase.
Amazon indicated that the Righetti game was announced by Mel Allen, which is incorrect. He appears nowhere on this disc, whose audio is from the radio broadcast that day. It was nice to hear Rizzuto, White & Messer again, but I was very disappointed Allen's call from pay tv that day was not included. He does, of course, announce half of Larsen's game. That omission is probably of little importance to most, but I was looking forward to hearing him one more time.
So... Five stars for the set, but none for Amazon for misleading me.
