Knute Rockne, All American
Knute Rockne, All American is a 1940 biographical film which tells the story of Knute Rockne, perhaps the most famous of all of the football coaches at Notre Dame, one of the most successful football programs in history. It stars Pat O'Brien , Gale Page, Ronald Reagan, Donald Crisp, Albert Bassermann , Owen Davis Jr. , Nick Lukats , Kane Richmond , William Marshall and William Byrne . The role of "George 'The Gipper' Gipp" by Ronald Reagan gave him the nickname of "The Gipper" for the rest of his life.
The movie was written by Robert Buckner and directed by Lloyd Bacon. The film has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.
- The last thing he said to me, "Rock," he said, "sometime when the team is up against it and the breaks are beating the boys, tell them to go out there with all they've got and win just one for the Gipper."
