Movie Reviews

Synopsis:
The true story of the friendship between football great Gale Sayers and cancer victim Brian Piccolo, the Chicago Bears' first interracial roommates.

Notes:
Winner of five Emmys, including Best Dramatic Program of the 1971-72 Season. Writer William Blinn and co-star Jack Warden were honored for their individual achievements. Both stars, James Caan and Billy Dee Williams, were nominated. "Brian's Song" had a brief and unsuccessful theatrical release. So many people had watched it on television that there was virtually no theatrical audience. The film's cast also features various members of the Chicago Bears as themselves, including Abe Gibron, Jack Concannon, Ed O'Bradovich, and Dick Butkus. Original airdate: November 30, 1971 on the ABC Television Network.
