Movie Review - Number One - Heston as Old Pro -

I'm pretty sure I went to see this movie. Watching those clips...was that Billy Kilmer. It almost had to be if the movie was shot in '69. I think I even saw Cuozzo in one shot. I could be wrong.

I saw Don Criqui's (sp?) name in the credits. I watched all the games as a kid from either channel 4 out of NO or channel 5 out of Mobile. I'm pretty sure that CBS had the NFL and NBC had AFL back in those days. I was in Gulfport so if the game was blacked-out in NO, we still got to see it on the Mobile station which was out of the black-out range. We got Don Criqui all the time. I can remember his voice now like it was yesterday.

**** Partial Spoiler ****

Despite having All-Pro signal-caller Billy Kilmer as an instructor, Charlton Heston did not make a very convincing pro quarterback. "I marveled at how skinny he was in a Saints uniform," said local DJ Bob Walker, who was an extra in the movie. "It hung on him like a cheap suit three sizes too big. When the cameras weren't rolling we watched him try to throw some passes. His receiver was 10-20 yards away and his alleged passes didn't come close." Joe Wendryhoski, who basically played himself in the film as the Saints center, called Heston "a great guy, very sociable" who unfortunately "didn't have an athletic bone in his body. As a quarterback, he left a lot to be desired."

In the final scene when Catlan is crushed by the Dallas defense (actually portrayed by Saints players Mike Tilleman, Dave Rowe and Fred Whittingham), neither Heston nor the producer felt the hit on him was realistic enough, so Heston asked them to cut loose to really make it look authentic. On the second take, the trio slammed the actor to the ground, breaking three of his ribs.
