    6.5/10. One of Anthony Perkins best and most memorable performances. Great supporting cast, well directed, sensitively written. Compelling and engrossing. It's not a particularly fast moving film, but it is well done.

  • MORE THAN A BASEBALL MOVIE.

    THIS IS A MOVIE ABOUT THE STRUGGLE OF LIFE.TONY PERKINS PROVES IN THIS FILM THAT HE IS A GREAT ACTOR.IT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN A BASEBALL FILM.

  • Good Casting for Fear Strikes Out

    You can't really think of too many young actors of that time to play a part like this-- Anthony Perkins was a master at playing frigit,unstable characters and he hits a homerun in Fear Strikes Out. Karl Malden plays his dad that trains his son to be the best ball player at an early age. This persistance of heavy training gets the better of him when he was in the minors. Then the Boston Red sox calls him up to malor league level, he snaps and loses it. All he wanted to do was to please his father , but couldn't. This true story makes you realize that athelites are people too and you never know when one will falter with his own life. Just like everyone else, they all have some kind of a past that might be dramatic enough for a movie. I give this film a solid **** out of a possible ***** stars
