I was about 10 or 11 years old when I saw the movie. I was living in a small town in Oklahoma, Woodward. I was born in Los Angeles, Ca and very quickly became a Los Angeles Rams fan. The movie was great and because of seeing it, I became more and more in love with football. In 1955 my family moved back to Los Angeles and I was in heaven. Not only the wonderful smell of orange groves but I was so close to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. I feel very honored to have met Elroy "CRAZYLEGS" Hirsh many times in the tunnel after several games along with some great players of the time. I feel that any father with young sons and daughters should try and find the movie and watch together the wonderful world of professional football the way it was and should be now.Thank you............jackP.S. I rate the movie *****

Great classic about a great football player. Super movie for kids and adults, especially those interested in football. The game has changed but the old time game is still the classic beginning. This movie holds one's attention and will thrill those who watch it. Would love for it to come out in DVD so I can buy it or have it play on TCM so I and my grandsons can watch it.
Truly one of the Greats from the Past

This is a wonderful movie about the life of a midwestern man and what he went through becoming a truly great collegiate and professional football player. It tells the story about how he met his wife and what happened when he went into the service and was in college yet was able to remain close to the love of his life. It is a great film about a very kind hearted and generous man who had a very unique running style which gave him his nickname. I had the terrific fortune to have met Mr. Hirsch while attending the University of Wisconsin as a student and he was the Athletic Director. He was just the same in person then as he was in the movie in 1953. This is a must see if you truly enjoy sporting movies.
