Classic Film Series presents: "Angels in the Outfield"

For Release: March 6, 2008
College Station, TX -

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum continues its Classic Film Series lineup with Angels in the Outfield (1951) on Thursday, March 6, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the Presidential Conference Center. This classic film directed by Clarence Brown is a fictional tale of the Pittsburgh Pirates who are on a serious losing streak, which could be in part due to their gruff, abusive manager. It looks like the team is doomed until the prayers of a little orphan girl bring angels into the life of the obscene Manager Guffy. Comedy and charm form the winning lineup of this film, starring Paul Douglas as the team's short-fused manager, Janet Leigh as a newspaper columnist, and special appearances by baseball greats Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio.

The theme for the classic film series is centered around the Born to Play Ball exhibit which opens on March 1, 2008. These classic films are dedicated to America's Favorite Pastime - baseball. Admission and refreshments to all of the films are FREE. For more information, call 979-691-4014.

Join us for all of the classic films and see the men and women who were Born to Play Ball.  For a complete schedule go to http://bushlibrary.tamu.edu.
