Before "The Blues Brothers" there was "The Boyer Brothers" Third base, 1964!
Are you a Sox fan? 'Course you are! So sink your choppas into this collection of vintage Red Sox season highlight films from back when the Sawx weren't very good, and then one year when they were -- the legendary Impossible Dream season of '67. Transcribed from a VHS source at least a couple of generations removed from the actual films, but still remarkably watchable. Nice color and some innovative (for the time) use of slo-motion cinematography help, as do the outstanding narrative contributions of Curt Gowdy and Ken Coleman. Enjoy scenes of ol' Fenway Park on beautiful summer afternoons in Back Bay, when the fellas wore crew cuts or fedoras and the ladies dresses and gloves. Also included is a feature on underrated Red Sox third baseman Frank Malzone. 1954: Baseball in Boston 0:00 1955: The Red Sox at Home 22:06 1956: The Red Sox - Pride of New England 43:28 (a regrettable blackout of about 12 seconds when Ted Williams comes to bat, but you still get a nice color closeup of The Kid powdering that pill.) 1957: Play Ball With the Red Sox 1:04:26 1962: This Is Baseball with Frank Malzone 1:26:10 1967: The Impossible Dream 1:29:43
