A Love Affair: The Eleanor and Lou Gehrig Story
A sentimental retelling of the love story of baseball immortal Lou Gehrig and his wife, told from her point of view. Originally this was to have premiered in October 1977, but ironically it was pre-empted by the World Series. Instead it had its initial airing opposite the Super Bowl Game! An Emmy Award nomination went to Blanche Hanalis for her adaptation of Eleanor Gehrig's book.
