Detroit Tigers 4, Chicago Cubs 3. This film includes the highlights of all seven games between the Tigers and Cubs plus bonus footage. War-time travel restrictions were still in effect so the first three games were played at Briggs Stadium in Detroit. The Tigers were led by AL MVP Hal Newhouser, who won two games, and Hank Greenberg, who had seven hits, including two homers and three doubles. The Cubs were led by Phil Cavarretta, who batted .432. Included on the DVD are interviews with Cavaretta, Newhouser, Virgil Trucks and Paul Richards eight years after the Series.
There is also a segment on the 1939 Cubs at spring training at California’s Catalina Island. B&W. 76 min. DVD.
