Synopsis: "A League Of Their Own" takes place during World War II when baseball lineups and locker rooms were left empty. During this time the All-American Girls Baseball League brought talented women to the big leagues––and brought fans to the stands. The indomitable Dottie Hinson (Davis) finds herself leading a ragtag group of players who end up winning over the heart of their has-been coach, Jimmy Dugan (Hanks). The film is part of a a collection of six of the most acclaimed and beloved films in the Sony Pictures Home Entertainment library. It is presented on 4K Ultra HD disc for the first time ever. This must-own set includes iconic favorites that span the studio's history. In addition to "A League Of Their Own," the Volume 1 collection features "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington," "Lawrence Of Arabia," "Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb," "Gandhi," "A League Of Their Own" and "Jerry Maguire." Each film is fully restored in 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR). The six films in the Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection are only available on 4K Ultra HD disc within this special collector's set with a limited-edition run of fewer than 8,000 units in the U.S. Included with the collection is a gorgeous hardbound 80-page book, featuring in-depth sections about the making of each film within the set via an all-new essay written by acclaimed film historian Julie Kirgo. In addition, the set also includes an exclusive disc featuring excerpts from Columbia Pictures' televised 50th anniversary special, which originally aired in 1975 and has never been officially available. These excerpts feature rare on-camera insights from such luminaries as Frank Capra, Phil Silvers and Orson Wells. This exclusive disc also includes the vintage behind-the-scene documentary "Mr. Attenborough and Mr. Gandhi," which was filmed on the set of "Gandhi" and features interviews with cast and crew.
