In the mid-'60s, the unlikely mutual respect that built between Chicago Bears backs Gale Sayers (Billy Dee Williams) and Brian Piccolo (James Caan) led to their becoming the NFL's first interracial roommates. The story of their friendship-and how it was tested by the battle with cancer that cut Piccolo's life tragically short at 26-became one of the most popular made-for-television movies of all time. Multiple Emmy-winner co-stars Shelley Fabares, Jack Warden, Judy Pace, Bernie Casey. 74 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; audio commentary by Caan, Williams; featurette; theatrical trailer.
