Rudy grew up in a steel mill town where most people ended up working, but wanted to play football at Notre Dame instead. There were only a couple of problems. His grades were a little low, his athletic skills were poor, and he was only half the size of the other players. But he had the drive and the spirit of 5 people and has set his sights upon joining the team. Written by

In the movie, Rudy gets to play for the first time in a game against Georgia Tech. However, as they show Rudy running down the field during the kickoff, you can see a maroon and gold Boston College banner in the crowd behind him. This scene was filmed at the halftime of the real ND/Boston College game in 1992. See more
Rudy,are you ready for this, champ?

Then you take us out on the field.
This is one of the few films in which the infamous "Alan Smithee" is given directorial credit for ONLY the commercial TV version. If viewed on VHS, DVD, pay cable etc... David Anspaugh is given his proper credit as director in the opening credits. However the editing for extra commercials on the free TV version is done so heavily -which alters the context- that Mr Smithee is the "director" when this film is shown there. See more
