our generation no other major sport has
been documented at its best than the NFL!
Now in addition to the new NFL channel
which will have all those great shows
you’ve seen on ESPN, NFL Films has
gone farther and taken their touch to
With the advent of DVD’s, you can
now store a lot more information on a
disc than you ever could on a VHS or even
Beta tapes (remember them?) More and more
entertainment groups are getting into
the business of putting their best shows
together and putting them out as seasons
as an alternative to or in addition of
syndication (i.e. Friends, Sanford and
Son, The Simpsons).
It is really cool because if you never
got the chance to watch, or missed show
you can now watch your favorite shows,
movies and programs with some added features.
The crew at NFL Films has jumped on the
boat as well, grabbing some of their lost
footage from their successful Lost Treasures
of NFL Films and putting it together with
the classic music and photography that
has made the NFL Films (based in South
Jersey) acclaimed for years.
Steve Sabol host the film as he does
all NFL Films’ specials and brings
you all the beautiful shots and the shots
that didn’t make the cut for a variety
This film takes you through the beginning
of NFL Films in the early 60’s,
when the league was struggling to survive,
through the merger with the American Football
League in 1970, giving you facts, first
person stories and pictures that will
help you appreciate the league’s
and NFL Films rise to prominence.
The film also covers topics of racism,
the legendary Jim Brown’s dominance,
and the Hippie Hangout: San Francisco’s
old Kezar Stadium. The volumes show those
everyone knows and those you’d hear
you’d only hear grandpa talk about.
It is great start too hopefully more
exciting titles being brought to you by
the camera wizards at NFL Films.
I’ll give the three volumes 5 globes
because it is unseen footage, great photography
and great tidbits any football would love.
Also because no one can do this better
than NFL Films does. They are the standard
the other leagues’ film teams go
