Desi Arnaz Jr.
Superb portrayal of the reality of College football.
I last saw this when I was 14 years old and have still not forgotten it. Five years after he proved he was a superb dramatic actor by starring in the only good TV show about state and local politics, Richard Crenna played a far less likable character than Jim Slattery in this powerful, unblinking look at the cost of College football glory. The cast of this great film included Clu Gallagher, Joanna Pettet,Ned Beatty and Forrest Tucker.Clu Gallager plays the "Footsteps of the title, a mediocre Football coach (and mediocre human being) who needs his old enemy, the ruthless, win at all costs- and brilliant- Richard Crenna to turn his 2 and 8 team into a winner. Forrest Tucker plays an thoroughly sleazy millionaire booster. Needless to say, like the Television show I alluded to earlier, it is NOT available on DVD, and is never likely to be. well, Human stupidity remains as infinite as the Universe itself.
