Why do so many movies show or play an ND football game when the script calls for a college football game to be on the TV or radio in the scene? There's "Diehard", "Godfather II" and this scene from "The Sopranos". Just curious if it's just a coincidence or if ND has an agent in Hollywood.

we contracted with for first aid/CPR training used a short film as part of the CPR module to show the signs of a heart attack and how the person in distress will deny the problem. On his TV he had the ND v. USC game playing. And this was far enough back in time such that we were probably still good, certainly could do a remake and use Irish football footage today.


Yeah, I used to think that's how I will die.

Heart attack during a classic ND football game. But since we now suck balls, I don't give enough shit to have heartburn, let alone a grabber.

Candidate for worst movie of all time. Most of the attendance came after UND sued for defamation, giving free publicity to the studio and a reason for the haters to show up. It must still sell tickets and it fits period pieces before we treated to thrilling contests between directional state U's.


I watched it again last week on tv.

It's a quality film. Funnier than it gets credit for.

knee ended his shot at the League, so he had to become an FBI agent, surfer, and skydiver (even without a parachute)

"Full Metal Jacket" (1987). All had a character where it was mentioned that he went to Notre Dame and played football. The free PR ND got back when its FB program was relevant was amazing. But as pvm333 says, don't expect to see any more of this. FYI, I guess you can tell I'm a war movie buff.


Mafioso...good Catholics...cheer for old Notre Dame.

"Before the dinner, Christopher tells his guardian, Prince Saul, that he wants to know more about the life of the common man in America. His biggest dream is to play American football for Notre Dame."

"The story ends with Christopher, Oliver and Stan singing the Notre Dame fight song together with the policemen."

If you like Laurel and Hardy this is a must see..... I stumbled across it on TV and it was great...
