Reporters at a baseball game by G. G. Bain, 1910-1915
Just watched “Woman of the Year”, at which we see some of this in action. It’s got a fun opening where our heroine, international correspondent & diplomat’s daughter, makes the comment that maybe the nation shouldn’t be continuing baseball during a war crisis.
The blatant ignorance of this comment brings our hero, sports reporter, to take her to a game.
The movie goes a bit downhill from there—I feel that women’s rights are more a token issue (rather than His Girl Friday’s “deal with it” attitude) and the movie fizzles rather than climaxing.
But the world of baseball then looked fascinating.
