Cobb is a 1994 baseball film starring Tommy Lee Jones as baseball player Ty Cobb. It was written and directed by Ron Shelton, and Al Stump wrote the book on which the movie was based. The original music score was composed by Elliot Goldenthal.Based on a true story, Robert Wuhl plays sportswriter Al Stump who is hired to write an authorized "autobiography" of Cobb. Stump arrives at the Tahoe home of the dying Cobb to write the official life story of the first baseball player inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He finds a drunken, misanthropic, bitter racist who abuses his biographer as well as everyone else. A Hall of Fame induction weekend, with many old players attending, is featured. After spending time with Cobb, Stump is torn between writing the book that Cobb wants and writing the truth.
