Description by OLDIES.com:
Newly arrived in America, Maher's first job was as a waiter at West Point. Clumsy and boisterous, he quickly broke so much of the military academy's china that he was forced to join the army to repay his debts. But once enlisted, the rough-and-ready Dubliner served his adopted nation with rare dedication, establishing himself as an inspirational coach at West Point. Spanning 50 years and two world wars, the film shows Maher at his best, molding and motivating the young men who would become America's heroes and presidents. Filmed on location with a stellar supporting cast (including Ford favorites Maureen O'Hara, Ward Bond and Harry Carey, Jr.), The Long Gray Line) is a stirring reminder of Marty Maher's proud place in history.
- "The Long Gray Line" is based on the experiences of real-life West Point athletic trainer Marty Maher.
- Additional cast: Walter D. Ehlers (Mike Shannon) and Chuck Courtney (Whitey Larson).
