A League Of Their Own (1992)

A League Of Their Own begins in Oregon, on a dairy farm. We learn this from the subtitle. The farm we see is actually in Indiana (or Illinois). I leave it to the readers of Oregon Movies, A to Z to ponder why it was important to have milkmaid athletes Dottie (Geena Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty) come from Oregon, and not the Midwest.

At one point in the story, Dottie’s teammates call her “Oregon” as a nickname.

When I worked in Astoria cleaning fish one summer, my co-workers called me “Boston”. Strange because I am not from Boston. When I went East to go to school, no one called me “Oregon”, but maybe they would have if I played ball as well as Geena Davis in A League Of Their Own.

I hereby claim A League of Their Own as an Oregon film, under this slight, but nonetheless real, qualification: it has scenes set (although not shot) in Oregon.

SPECIAL POSTSCRIPT FOR GEENA DAVIS AND TOM HANKS FANS: I saw a preview test screening for A League Of Their Own which included romantic scenes between Tom Hanks and Geena Davis. Geena and Tom were very believable together, but this plot line was dropped from the version which made it to theaters, cutting short the potential William Powell/Myna Loy style franchise which could have resulted. They were pretty darn hot playing two sexually attracted adults. Strange but true!
