CATFA 112: The Attempt to Gaslight Steve Rogers

Minute 112: From An Absolutely Gorgeous Day at Ebbets Field to Steve Shifting His Gaze

Joining us, we have Steve Sarmento from Trailer Rewind and the TruStory FM Entertainment Podcast Network.

In the one hundred twelfth minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger

We talk about the anachronisms that might be tripping Steve up as he wakes. None of us are baseball fans, so there has to be more than just the game, right? Like maybe the fact that they’ve turned the room sepia toned?

Well, as it turns out, that particular baseball game stands out in the annals of baseball history so there’s reason the screenwriters picked it, and there’s reason that Steve recognized it. Does it bother us that it feels so written though? Not too much by this point in the movie.

We also talk about the fact that the nurse’s hair style and bra style may also be giveaways for Steve. And what if he looked out that window? Or picked up the paper? Or questioned why he was in his clothes?

So many reasons to be skeptical here, but we enjoy the minute thoroughly. Tune in!
