Description
"Win Just One For The Gipper."

"I've decided to take up coaching as my life work," Knute Rockne says. Coach he does, revolutionizing football with his strategies, winning close to 90 percent of his games, and helping establish the University of Notre Dame's Fighting Irish as a gridiron powerhouse. But victories alone do not mean success to Rockne. He wants to shape his players into responsible and honorable men. This famed sports biopic combines a passion for the game (and footage of actual Notre Dame contests) with two superb performances: Pat O'Brien in the title role and Ronald Reagan as George Gipp, the gifted but doomed halfback whose deathbed plea is "win just one for the Gipper." The line remains one of cinema's most memorable. And for the rest of his life, Reagan would often be called the Gipper.

    Comments about this product:

    This is good sport drama and great biography of Knute Rocke, a football coach for Norte Dame protrayed by Pat O'Brien. Ronald Reagan played George Gipp, a halfback before his unexpected death.

    I wish I understood football. Nobody can explain the roles of the strange positions or the rules of the game. But, I do not need to know anything to enjoy this movie.

    By reading the reviews, I was lucky. My DVD runs fine.

    I invite you to take a spin on the roulette wheel, this is a fine movie about these two people, and how Knute formed boys into responsible and honorable mature men. I've heard the phrase, "One for the Gipper", since I was a child. Now, I know the phrase background.

    One scene that brought giggles from me. Knute treated his team to a show watching chorus girls dancing. He saw a beautiful maneuver. Then, trying to teach his boys how to do this quick change of positions. Clumsy dunces!

          I received the first DVD of this movie and it would not play on two different DVD players, a second DVD was sent and it would not play also. Have not yet received a replacement or refund. I'm disappointed, this is a good movie.

          Great classic! I just wished I could watch the entire movie...as the DVD sticks in the first few chapters. I was sent three (3) different DVD's. All have the exact same problem!

                            This particular DVD was not like normal DVDs, in that it would freeze repeatedly when in use, from the first attempt to watch. Seemed thicker than most. All other DVDs work perfectly in my machine, but NOT this one.

                                    I gave the film to my high school football coach son. After seeing the movie myself and hearing some of the same words come from my son regarding coaching I felt it enlightening for him to view the film. He has always been a huge Knute Rockne/Notre Dame fan.
