Rudy
Friday ONLY, October 1
Starring Sean Astin, Jon Favreau & Ned Bealty

Based on the inspiring true story of Daniel 'Rudy' Ruettiger. Rudy has always been told that he was too small to play college football. But he is determined to overcome the odds and fulfill his dream of playing for Notre Dame.

Rudy grew up in a steel mill town where most people ended up working, but wanted to play football at Notre Dame instead. There were only a couple of problems. His grades were a little low, his athletic skills were poor, and he was only half the size of the other players. But he had the drive and the spirit of 5 people and has set his sights upon joining the team.

In real life, Coach Dan Devine was very supportive of Rudy and elected to put him in the game on his own. Because Devine considered Rudy a friend, he volunteered to play a villain in order to get the film greenlit. However, Devine was upset about the scene in which several players laid down their jerseys on his desk as a form of protest for not letting Rudy suit up for the upcoming Georgia Tech game. According to Devine, that incident never took place and if it had, the players involved would have been booted off the team.

The football scenes have an added sense of realism because director David Anspaugh never filmed any scenes with a camera on the field. As with a broadcast of a real game, all football scenes were filmed with off-field cameras.

In the scenes from the game in which Rudy actually plays, the jerseys of the players have the names of actors and crew.

According to Rudy, he has no brother named Frank in real life. The character of Frank is all of the people who told Rudy he couldn't do it rolled into one person.
