New York Times - 08/01/1979
"...Full of easygoing, deceptively casual horseplay....[Nolte is] something to see."

Product Description:

NORTH DALLAS FORTY is a funny and insightful peek into the world of professional football, adapted from Peter Gent's novel. Phillip Elliott is an aging wide receiver for the North Dallas Bulls who still delivers on the field--despite the many past injuries that keep him in almost constant pain. Almost as painful for him is the constant abuse heaped on the players by management. Now Phillip's determined to do something about it. The corporate bigwigs, however, are growing increasingly annoyed by Elliott's complaining. Will the athlete cave in to the pressure and keep his mouth shut or fight the executives at the risk of ending his career' Featuring a stellar cast that includes Charles Durning, Mac Davis, and Nick Notle, this film ranks with HORSE FEATHERS, SEMI-TOUGH, and THE LONGEST YARD as one of the greatest football films of all time.

Plot Synopsis:

This screen adaptation of Peter Gent's best-selling novel about labor abuse in the NFL is one of the greatest gridiron movies ever made.


Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: August 1, 1979.
