1961 World Series

release year: 1961
genre: sports footage/documentary
viewing setting: home DVD, 4/16/07

synopsis: This is a reconstruction of the 1961 World Series between the Yankees and the Reds, using actual footage and narration from 1961.

impressions: This is a DVD from a company that speciallizes in this sort of thing. The footage was classic, and was put together to show the high points of each game of that World Series. There are even beer commercials from 50+ years ago, which are funny to watch. Another section of this DVD also shows pitch-by-pitch footage of some at-bats.

acting: n/a, but the narration is lively.

final word: Good classic baseball.
