The greatest football motivational film I ever saw!
I heard that the Bryant Family did not like this movie and bought up all rights to it. It is a shame because this was the football that we were taught and played back in the 50's & 60's. Hard nosed,smash mouth football--face blocking (broken noses)--only wimps need water attitude-- you put your face on the opposition's number and knock him down. None of the previous can be coached or taught anymore for fear of injury,lawsuits but that is why this film was so motivational to me as a youth,high school and major College player from that era.
