Fear Strikes Out
This absorbing biopic stars Anthony Perkins as Jimmy Piersall, whose talents on the baseball diamond take him to the Major Leagues as a Red Sox outfielder -- and whose desire to please his domineering dad lands him in a mental institution. During the 1952 season, Piersall's dramatic nervous breakdown plays out in front of a nationwide audience. Karl Malden is outstanding as Piersall's taskmaster father.
