North Dallas Forty

Disposable warriors.

The seamy side of professional football is on vivid display in this rip-snorting comedy/drama, which still has considerable impact.

Nick Nolte anchors the cast as an aging player who can barely pull himself out of bed, but keeps on keepin’ on.

But only if he gets to play the game the way he wants.

Blowing off overbearing coaches and ignorant management types, he pledges to fly his freak flag.

As the game and the sharks who run it close in, Nolte is the last of a dying breed, beautifully bull-headed to the end.

Catch him before he’s gone.
