  • Director Ron Shelton spent some time playing baseball in the minor leagues before becoming a director. This is his feature film debut, but he has since gone on to do another sports-related film, the 1992 comedy "White Men Can't Jump." Susan Sarandon met her current paramour, Tim Robbins, on the set of "Bull Durham." They now live in New York City and have two children together. The film gave Robbins one of his early roles, and he has since gone onto to do several major roles, especially his acclaimed performance in Robert Altman's "The Player." Recently, he made the foray into directing with the film he wrote, starred in, directed, and composed the music for, "Bob Roberts." (Ironically, according to Shelton, Orion executives urged the director to fire Robbins and replace him with "The Breakfast Club" actor Anthony Michael Hall; Shelton and Costner stood by Robbins, saying they would no longer work on the film if Robbins was out; the executives back down, and Robbins completed his work on "Bull Durham.") Susan Sarandon was recently nominated for her performance in the 1992 film "Lorenzo's Oil." Kevin Costner has also gone on to major stardom, especially with his successes in his star performance and direction of the 1990 Academy Award Winner "Dances With Wolves." The film appeared at the Deauville Film Festival in September, 1988, and at the Moscow International Film Festival in July, 1989. Shot in Panavision. Prints by Deluxe.
