How He Loves Us! (Paul Sullivan Jr. - 04 September 2016)
The Natural (1984)
Bottom of the ninth. Two outs. Two strikes. A baseball smashes through the glass bulbs of the outfield stadium lights. A short-circuit of electricity sends a shower of sparks pouring over the outfield grass.
For the better part of the past decade, Paul Sullivan has written about and lived among some of the wealthiest people in America. He has learned how they save, spend, and invest their money; how they work and rest; how they use their wealth to give their children educational advantages, but not strip them of motivation. He has also seen how they make horrendous mistakes. This book shows how others can make better financial decisions—and come to terms with what money means to them. It lays out how to avoid the pitfalls around saving, spending, and giving money away and think differently about wealth to lead a more secure and less stressful life. From to , he was a reporter, editor, and columnist at the Financial Times.
Like Like. I would say Ted Donaldson, Once Upon a Time, , but this photograph looks twenty years later, if not thirty. Kirk Cameron? Orley Lindgren…………. Never saw this movie. I have always avoided Robert Redford movies. That stadium scene is from the beginning when the NY Knights were terrible and no one was in the seats.
The Money Secrets of the Super Wealthy
It was the first film produced by TriStar Pictures. Many of the baseball scenes were filmed in at War Memorial Stadium in Buffalo, New York , built in and demolished in As a young boy growing up on a Nebraska farm in the s, Roy Hobbs learns to play baseball from his father, with whom he plays catch regularly. One afternoon, the elder Hobbs collapses underneath a mighty oak tree in front of their house and dies from a heart attack. Shortly thereafter, lightning strikes the oak tree during a thunderstorm and splits the trunk down the middle. Several years later in , a now year-old Hobbs Redford shares with his girlfriend Iris Close that he has an opportunity to try out for the Chicago Cubs.
But the movie doesn't have any fancy special effects -- the life of Roy Hobbs Robert Redford is grounded firmly on farms, in trains, in locker rooms, and, of course, on the diamond. The filmmakers weren't "true" to the Bernard Malamud novel upon which the film is based, but they did strive mightily to be true to the historical period in which they set the story primarily and , and to some important baseball history. In Real Life: In the s and s, gloves, though much smaller than today's, did have a little bit of webbing. The webbing was introduced by pitcher Bill Doak of the St. Louis Cardinals in , according to Total Baseball. Getting used to the old-fashioned glove was hard for Redford. In , they used those small gloves with the five stubby fingers and no webbing.
