Product Description

Amazon.ca

In 1994 the National Football League celebrated its 75th birthday. Narrated by John Mahoney, 75 Seasons tells the story of professional football in America from 1920 to 1994. The story starts with an interview with Alda Browser of the Canton Bulldogs, the only surviving player from the first professional team. We learn that the pro game lived for years in the shadow of the amateur university contests, and we witness the effect of society upon the game itself; as the men returned from World War II, the NFL evolved into a brutal contest--a battle of men waging war over territory and possession. Compared to being shot and scared senseless, the game of football, though, was fun. Crowds became eager for the game, and athletes such as Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Homer Jones in the 1950s, and Joe Namath in the 1960s became football superstars. Joe Montana, Don Shula, and Bill Walsh make insightful observations about the development of the league over the last half of the 20th century, from the style of play to the style of player. This thoroughly absorbing retrospective is a must for football fans to have in their library. --Jeremy Storey

3.0 out of 5 stars Where is Ken Burns?? June 25 2003
Ken Burns, you should do history of the NFL. The documentary should be 10 episodes, with each episode being 1 hour long. And the documentary should be presented on PBS, of coarse.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disjointed film. March 31 2000
By DBW
This uncharacteristically haphazard production virtually ignores the earliest days of pro football, spends too much precious time recounting the history of the rival AFL (which deserves a separate film of its own), and doggedly refuses to follow any kind of chronological order. While baseball gets the Ken Burns treatment, with a proper multi-volume approach, NFL fans are stuck with this. NFL Films generally does good work, but not here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest NFL Documentary Feb. 15 1999
This is what NFL films is all about. After seeing this on TNT after a Sunday Night Football game, I became an NFL films junkie. A must see for any football fan!
