Lone Star Film Festival - The Longest Yard
November 9, 2012
220 East Third Street , Fort Worth, TX
Achievement in Film Producing Award Recipient, Albert S. Ruddy, presents the original classic that he not only produced by wrote the story for. One of all-time-greatest football films about one-time pro quarterback Paul Crewe (Burt Reynolds in top form), now behind bars, as he agrees to organize a prisoners’ football team to play the prison guards’ semi-pro team. Eddie Albert, playing against type, plays the sadistic warden overseeing the game and pushing the guards’ team to win a national championship. Seen as just a practice game, the inmates are given a license to pound on their hated guards - which becomes a big incentive for the group of murders and thieves to form a team and learn strategy - cumulating into one of the great movie football games ever shot.
