Did You Know?

Trivia

With the movie being filmed in Australia, virtually all of the young men playing prospective Aggie football players were Australian. Therefore, all of the Texas accents - as convincing as they might've been - were indeed fake. See more »

Goofs

A sign reads "Texas A&M University". Texas A&M did not become a "university" until 1962. In the 1950s, it was called "Texas A&M College." See more »

Quotes

Bear Bryant: [Skeet tiptoes around a tackler] What the hell is that? Some kind of dance they do in Lufkin? We don't skate here, we hit!
[Grabs Skeet by his pads]
Bear Bryant: Son, it's gettin' pretty clear to me that you want the fame without the sweat. Not on this team! The next time I catch you waving your press clippings at a tackler, you can pack your act back to East Texas.

Could have been better, but not bad...
14 December 2002 | by jacksoncSee all my reviews

My main complaint is the use of made up names, in the manner of North Dallas Forty. I can not imagine the real "Junction Boys" having any trouble with their real names having been used. I also have a minor complaint about the players hugging each other. They did not do that, not in 1954. They just didn't. Otherwise, it is an outstanding diversion. As near as I can tell, not a whole lot of

other liberties have been taken with the truth. It is worth watching...
