Fear Strikes Out DVD 1957 Anthony Perkins Biography Drama NR Black & White
Stars of Fear Strikes Out: Anthony Perkins, Karl Malden, Norma Moore
Jim Piersall is groomed by his loving but hard-driving father (living vicariously through his son) to play major league baseball. His desire to succeed to please his father leads to mental illness and a nervous breakdown. Can he overcome those difficulties and return to the major leagues?
Fear Strikes Out covers Jimmy Piersall’s life from a 12 year old boy in Waterbuary, CT through his being committed into a institution for treatment of his mental illness due to the his fear that he’ll never be the person that his father wanted him to be. As well as the fear that he wouldn’t be able to care and provide for his parents and newlywed wife Mary, Norma Moore, and their new born daughter Eileen. The best part of the movie was when John Piersall finally understood what he did to his son Jimmy in pushing him like he did.
Despite his fine record as a professional baseball player Jimmy’s overcoming the fear that almost destroyed him was by far Piersall’s greatest achievement.
