The film that established college sports—and the sniffly, tear-jerking sports movie—as pillars of American life, this film lionizes the gridiron legacy of Notre Dame, its famous coach Rockne (Pat O’Brien), and the doomed team martyr George “The Gipper” Gipp, played with boyish likability by Ronald Reagan. If you’re a devotee of college ball, quote Rockne’s climactic speech when tipsy (“win just one . . .”), or found Reagan adorable even as president, this is a DVD worth buying. Just don’t bring it to our house.
