30 Film Females: A League Of Their Own (1992)

Filed under: 30 Film Females — ootastic @ 7:26 pm

It’s been great to see so many Team GB women excel at the Rio Olympics.  My three-year old’s favourites so far have been “horse dancing” (dressage) and “jumping” (trampoline).  I’m intrigued to hear that Olympic baseball will be making a comeback at the 2020 games in Tokyo.  One of my memorable movies from early nineties, possibly because I’d been on the school rounders team, is the comedy-drama A League Of Their Own.  An enthusiastic ensemble cast – including Geena Davis, Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell – tells the real-life story of the All-American Girls Professional Girls Baseball League that was established during World War Two.  Aside from the obvious comparisons between Madonna and Marilyn Monroe, my pun-inclined brain always flags up the song Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend (actually from the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes).

Honourable mentions for 1992: a truly sinister Rebecca De Mornay in The Hand That Rocks The Cradle.  Also, Demi Moore gives good legal defense in A Few Good (Wo)Men.
