A League of Their Own
DIRECTOR: PENNY MARSHALL
CAST: GEENA DAVIS, LORI PETTY, TOM HANKS, MADONNA, ROSIE O'DONNELL
Capitalizing on a new and very public friendship with up-and-coming comic Rosie O’Donnell, ‘Mo and Ro’ team up with Geena Davis and Lori Petty (plus Tom Hanks as their misogynistic manager) in Penny Marshall’s feel-good chick-flick of summer 1992. As “All the Way” Mae Mordabito, Madonna affects her occasional ‘tough city-broad’ persona, with a thick Westchesta accent and zesty line readings. A July Fourth weekend home run, the critically adored comedy about an all-girls baseball team during World War II remained in theaters all summer.
