June-a Davis Month comes to a close with the excellent A League of Their Own! Who was cast as Dottie but dropped when they learned Madonna would be in the film? Which Oscar-winner auditioned for ‘All the Way’ Mae but couldn’t play baseball well enough? And what would a potential musical League look like? Also – we marvel at the casting of Older Dottie and Jeff finds himself forever hounded by the specter of the film Newsies!


A League of their Own stars Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Lori Petty, Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna, Megan Cavanagh, Tracy Reiner, Bitty Schram, Ann Cusack, Jon Lovitz, David Strathairn, Garry Marshall, Lynn Cartwright, and Bill ‘King of New York’ Pullman
