Did You Know?
Carol Williams, in this 1953 film, credits her dad, Steve (John Wayne) with saying, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Vince Lombardi was recorded as saying something like that in 1959 when he coached the Greenbay Packers. For years, many sportswriters wrongly attributed the source of the remark to Lombardi. The real source of the quote was UCLA Bruins Coach Henry "Red" Sanders. A former sports writer for the Los Angeles Herald and Express, Bud Furillo, said he first heard Sanders say it after UCLA lost its game to USC in 1949. No doubt the writers for this movie remembered having read or heard the phrase, so they included it in the screenplay for "Trouble Along the Way." See more
