Smith of Minnesota
21 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since this movie is no longer available for sale, I am curious if anyone out there has seen it and would like to share it with our family. My reason being that my father (now 85) played college football with the star of this movie, Bruce Smith, who was also from Minnesota, but died of Lou Gerrig's Disease in the 60's. Bruce was a handsome, dapper fellow in his day and made just this one Hollywood movie where he appeared as the only non-movie star in the entire film. He met his wife, a Californian, after making the movie and remained in California for awhile. He and his wife eventually moved back to Minnesota and settled down in the Midwest to raise four children in Alexandria. The Heisman Trophy awarded to him during his college career with Minnesota was recently sold on eBay by his family. We would love to have a copy of this movie for family reunions since the football footage was taken from the University of Minnesota Gopher 1941 National Champs' movie reels. Thank you for your indulgence. God bless. Lynda
