About this item
"Dark Victory" (1939): A young socialite is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and must decide whether she'll meet her final days with dignity. Bette Davis enjoyed one of her signature roles as a spoiled socialite facing terminal illness - with friend Reagan among those helping her toward a last chance to give her life meaning. "Knute Rockne All-American" (1940): "I've decided to take up coaching as my life work," Knute Rockne says. Coach he does, revolutionizing football with his strategies, winning close to 90 percent of his games, and helping establish the University of Notre Dame's "Fighting Irish" as a gridiron powerhouse. But victories alone do not mean success to Rockne. He wants to shape his players into responsible and honorable men. This famed sports biopic combines a passion for the game (and footage of actual Notre Dame contests) with two superb performances: Pat O'Brien in the title role and Ronald Reagan as George Gipp, the gifted but doomed halfback whose deathbed plea to "win one for the Gipper" remains one of cinema's most memorable quotes. And for the rest of his life, Reagan would often be called the Gipper. "Kings Row" (1942): It's a quaint turn-of-the-century small town with shady streets, swimming holes and the clip-clop of horse and buggy. But that peaceful exterior conceals human lives twisted by cruelty, murder and madness. "Kings Row" is one of Warner Bros.' most distinguished productions, highlighted by an outstanding cast, haunting James Wong Howe cinematography and a somber, emotion-laden Erich Wolfgang Korngold score. Ann Sheridan, Robert Cummings, Betty Field, Claude Rains and Charles Coburn give indelible performances and Ronald Reagan's portrayal of Drake, a cheerful ne'er-do-well shattered by tragedy, has been hailed as a career high. "Desperate Journey" (1942): When Flight Lt. Forbes and his crew are shot down after bombing their target, they discover valuable information about a hidden German aircraft factory that must get back to England. In their way across Germany, they try and cause as much damage as possible. Then, with the chasing Germans about to pounce, they come up with an ingenious plan to escape. Errol Flynn leads Reagan and other flyboys in a rousing wartime spirit-lifter. "Irving Berlin's This is the Army" (1943) - Irving Berlin's beloved songs propel a Technicolor musical spectacular based on the hit stage revue with an all-GI cast plus Hollywood's Reagan, George Murphy and Joan Leslie. "The Hasty Heart" (1949) - Monsoons drench them. The sun scorches them. Still, the Allies fight doggedly through Burma in 1945. For easygoing Yank (Ronald Reagan) and hard-headed Lachie (Richard Todd), the road to victory ends at a jungle hospital. With the help of a devoted nurse (Patricia Neal), they face a new battle called recovery. "Storm Warning" (1951) A fight for justice. Crusading D.A. Reagan joins Ginger Rogers and Doris Day in a courtroom battle against the Klu Klux Klan. "The Winning Team": Reagan and Doris Day catch baseball fever in the eventful tale of Hall of Fame pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander.
