Artfully done movie with great acting, directing and soundtrack. Rock chalk!
27 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally found this movie On Demand (Vimeo) and purchased it. I'm glad I did. Kip Niven's portrait of Phog Allen is heartbreaking (why isn't he on screen much anymore.) I had no idea the animosity between Allen and his successor Dick Harp. This movie really made me suspect that if Allen had been allowed to stay on as the KU coach, the Jayhawks would have won the national title with Chamberlain. The Jazz soundtrack drives the movie (reminds me of Birdman) and the Black and White photography helps set the mood as well. It's also nice to see a non-Empire performance from local Kansas Citian Trai Byers. The civil rights struggles of blacks in the 1950's is well depicted. Having lived and gone to school in Lawrence, Kansas it's hard to imagine that at one time in that city, blacks had to watch movies in the balcony and eat restaurant meals in the kitchen. I am going to have to try and find more of Kevin Willmott's work - especially CSA - The Confederate States of America. The only negative is my experience with Vimeo on my roku. The video drops out 3/4 of the way through the movie. I would suggest ordering the DVD from the Jayhawkers website as a better viewing option. I highly recommend this movie to everyone, not just Jayhawk or Chamberlain fans.
