There is deep racial lines drawn in the sand regarding the formation of the school districts in the area, this is the first topic covered. Then we cover Namath in Beaver Falls...why hasn't the city honored him? Then we look at Geneva College, and the Beaver Falls Library. Written by
Great Portrait of the Complexities of a small town.
I was a big Namath fan back in the day and purchased this on Amazon.com recently. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
The Namath stuff was great. The documentary talked to old coaches, friends, and neighbors of Namath from Beaver Falls. It also showed some rare pics of Namath from High School. A few I have never seen even on the internet.
What I was surprised about was the information about Beaver Falls itself. Since Namath left, the town has really gone downhill.
It's a nice documentary from a first-time filmmaker. I'd recommend it to any Namath fan, or anyone who grew up in Western Pennsylvania. 9 out of 10.
