Default Pride of the Yankees Movie Question?

The life of Lou Gehrig was the subject of the 1942 movie The Pride of the Yankees, starring Gary Cooper as Gehrig and Teresa Wright as his wife. It received 11 Academy Award nominations and won in one category, Film Editing.

Question: At the beginning of the movie the kids are talking about baseball cards, actually showing the M101-4 1916 Sporting News Babe Ruth rookie card.

Anyone know if the Ruth card in the movie was authentic?--

(probably been discussed here before--just curious)

And the kid refers to his cards as Sweet Caporals, which of course wasn't accurate.

They created their own for the movie I guess. Here's a regular Sporting News version.

Fun Fact:

Gary Cooper was right-handed so, in action shots, he would actually run to third base after hitting the ball...and then they reversed the film.

The insignia on his Yankees' cap was created backwards to complete the very-low tech deception.


- I personally don't know all this as fact, it could be an urban legend...but it sounds plausible.

Here are links to two websites where this is discussed:

https://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/09/s...t-flipped.html

http://legendsrevealed.com/entertain...kees-reversed/

Basically, the gist of it is that Gary Cooper batted left handed as best he could, and wore a glove on his right hand in the field, but for throwing scenes, the film was processed backwards, he was shown in closeup (to avoid having to reverse the logos on any other players' uniforms/caps), and the logos on his cap and uniform were reversed.
