The Natural

1939 New York Knights

Both the novel (1952) by Bernard Malamud and movie (1984) directed by Barry Levinson tell the mythical story of Roy Hobbs, although with very different endings.

The story is based on the real life shooting of Eddie Waitkus at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago in 1949.
