“Before there was “42” there was The Jackie Robinson Story.” My Nana said that the original was produced in to 40’s and also that the legend himself starred in it. So finally I had investigated and found The Jackie Robinson Story – In COLOR! Also Includes the Original Black-and-White Version which has been Beautifully Restored and Enhanced! at Amazon.
I do plan to see the current movie in a week or so.
Have you seen “42” or the old school version? Let me know in the comments.
