Description
Burt Lancaster plays one of the United States' most celebrated and controversial athletes in the biopic "Jim Thorpe - All America" (1951). Lancaster plays the title role, a Native American football player who won the pentathlon and decathlon at the 1912 Olympics, but was forced to forfeit his gold medals due to a stint playing professional baseball. "Casablanca" director Michael Curtiz helms this account of the athlete's career highs and lows, co-starring Charles Bickford, Phyllis Thaxter and Thorpe himself in a cameo as a coaching assistant.

      Comments about this product:

      This is a great biographical picture on Jim Thorpe. When I first saw this movie on television, I was impressed because I am not a sports fan. But, this guy was unusual in his ability to do anything athletic! From baseball, football and track, he was outstanding.

      This movie is very heart rendering for the last half, very sad. This first half is very heart lifting, all smile. This is a piece of history that I was unaware of until I watched it. I put it on my list to purchase it when it went on sale.

      Burt Lancaster plays Jim Thorpe. Charles Bickford plays Carlisle School for Indians coach and trainer for the Olympics of 1912. Phyllis Thaxter plays Jim's wife.

      I'll talk about some of his early life to intrigue you.
      Jim was an Oklahoma Indian, early USA sent five troublesome eastern tribes to OK to blend with original inhabitants. Over time, more tribes arrived to join the group. I doubt Jim knew which tribe he belonged. He just wanted to hunt and fish. Be with his grandmother and mother. His father insisted upon school, took him in the horse drawn buggy. He ran home and arrived before his father. So, when he got sent to Carlisle, it was a big adjustment. Once coach got him to participate in sports, he loved it. He became one the greatest athletes.

      I invite to watch. I think you will enjoy it.

                I love movies! Would rather watch them then TV shows. Old originals will always have a special place in my heart.
