I checked this out during a recent John Wayne retrospective on American
Movie Classics because it sounded so different from the Duke's usual "w/w"
fare (war & westerns). Here he plays Steve Williams, a disgraced
professional football coach enlisted to build a revenue-producing team that
will save a down-at-the-heels Catholic college from being forced to close.
In the process he has to fight for custody of his daughter from a spiteful
and vengeful ex-wife.
Wayne plays this role beautifully; his performance makes us aware of the
fine actor he made of himself as he worked his way up over the years from
those low-budget westerns, learning all along the way. Donna Reed puts in a
turn as a social worker, and Charles Coburn is in his usual fine fettle as
Father Burke, rector of the failing college. Wayne/William's daughter is
played very well by a young lady named Sherry Jackson, and there are many
familiar faces among the character actors in the cast. Chuck Connors makes
one of his earliest screen appearances here.
The pacing is good, and the story keeps us involved. These are all
interesting people, and we want to find out what happens to them. The script
is intelligent, gritty, and extremely witty in many places. Also notable is
a very on-the-money portrayal of the corrupting influence of big-time
athletics at the college level, as Wayne/Williams pulls many shady tricks to
field a team that can stand up to the ridiculously ambitious schedule that
Father Burke manages to finagle. The commentary is even more relevant today,
fifty years later, as college athletics have spun almost completely out of
One of the nicest things about the movie is the way in which, surprisingly,
it does not opt for the easy-way-out happy ending that we all think we see
coming as soon as Donna Reed as the social worker comes on the scene. The
film is brave enough to leave things a bit unresolved.
Altogether an off-beat, intriguing, well-made, well-written, well-acted and
thoroughly enjoyable little "sleeper" that is well worth your
