Movie Info

Knute Rockne-All American was Pat O'Brien's finest hour: thanks to intensive rehearsals and numerous makeup applications, he so closely resembled the title character that, in the words of Rockne's widow, "I almost expected him to make love with me". The life of the legendary Notre Dame football coach is recounted from his childhood, when young Rockne (played by Johnny Sheffield) startles his Norwegian-immigrant parents by announcing at the dinner table that he's just been introduced to "the most

Perhaps Ronald Reagan's greatest talent was his ability to float to the top.

Corn doesn't grow any higher than this male bonding tribute to testosterone.

The movie...is corny and sentimental, but it set the bar for all future sports pictures.

It set the way for how the Hollywood sports biography was to be subsequently made.

Audience Reviews for Knute Rockne - All American

The one genre from the 30's and 40's that suffers the most is easily the biopic. There are some great ones from this era, but most of them are the paint by number biopics like Knute Rockne. You see tragedy approaching from a mile away and they are filled with unrealistic and wild statements like "Look there, the forward pass, that's gonna change football forever!" I love films from this era and almost all of them have a line or two like this, but Knute Rockne and many other biopics from this time are littered from beginning to end with this garbage. The performances aren't bad, it's just the structure is flawed and makes the film goofy. I am glad that biopics nowadays don't suffer the same fate as......wait a minute.
