ReviewSource Movie Mirrors
Review An Indian boy runs home twelve miles from school, and his father persuades him that school is important...Jim Thorpe (Burt Lancaster) attends Carlisle Indian School and rooms with Ed Guyac (Dick Wesson) and Little Boy Who Walk Like Bear (Jack Big Head). Jim runs and is noticed by Pop Warner (Charles Bickford), who urges him to study and play sports. Jim excels in track events. Margaret Miller (Phyllis Thaxter) sews a letter on his coat, and Jim tries to impress her; but Warner won't let Jim play football. Jim tells Margaret that he is in love with her. Warner tells Jim to kick a field goal, but he runs for a touchdown. Jim tells Warner he wants to be a coach. Jim tells Margaret they have the same blood and gives her a bracelet...Jim plays football for $10. In 1932 he is fired from a dance marathon in Los Angeles. Warner finds him and says Margaret married again...This sports biography shows how a member of a persecuted minority can excel in athletics but not be given other opportunities, resulting in the huge disparity between living in poverty and being honored as the greatest athlete.
