Jim Thorpe – All American

$25.00

He did it. And he did it better than anyone. Oklahoma Indian Jim Thorpe played pro baseball, almost singlehandedly put pro football on the map and won Olympic gold medals – yet knew nothing of organized sports before enrolling as a young man at Carlisle School for Native Americans. When selecting “the greatest athlete of the 20th century”, American sportswriters really had only one choice: Jim Thorpe. Burt Lancaster brings Jim Thorpe to live in this black & white film.
