Grand Slam! 61* Now on Blu-ray

Friday, April 29th, 2011

61-blu-ray

A film by lifelong New York Yankee fan Billy Crystal, 61* is now available to own on Blu-ray. One was the Yankees’ best loved player; the other was their most valuable. In the summer of 1961, Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle took on Babe Ruth’s record, the 1927 single-season 60 home run slam. It would be a summer that no one who knows baseball would forget. In 1961, Mickey Mantle is a Yankee favorite. The smiling sun god of the season, a hit with fans and sports writers alike and natural heir to his predecessors Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, and Bebe Ruth. Also at bat is a young Midwesterner, Roger Maris. A hard-hitting right fielder, Maris is Mantle’s opposite in almost every way. Quiet and soft-spoken, he doesn’t add up to everything a sports legend should be, and finds himself losing the support of the fans when he refuses to try. As the summer of 1961 unfolds, both Maris and Mantle find themselves approaching Babe Ruth’s benchmark of 60 home runs. Facing mounting pressure from the media and the stands, they both know there’s only room for one winner. The people make their choice known. But the people’s favorite isn’t the favorite to win.

Four hundred years after the founding of the Republic, Rome is the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people; epicenter of a sprawling empire.

A serialized drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, husbands and wives, ROME® chronicles a turbulent era that saw the death of the republic and the birth of an empire.
