"Chicago Cubs - We Believe: A Relationship That Lasts a Lifetime"

This great documentary celebrates the relationship between the city of Chicago, the Cubs baseball team and its loyal fans. Director John Scheinfeld came up with the idea of making a film about the love affair between the team and its fans, and over a nine-month shooting schedule he was given great access to the players, archives and a wide range of materials to put together this fine film.

Included is the first-known film to be shot in Chicago by Thomas Edison in 1897, highlights of games and interviews with players past and present. Cubs fans span the globe, and cross all barriers. Some of the more famous are George Will, Bob Costas, Dennis Franz, Hugh Hefner, Bonnie Hunt, Jeff Garlin and Joe Mantegna. The terrific music features songs of Steve Goodman, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Frank Sinatra and others. Add this one to your collection.
