Question Rocky Bleier Movie

Anyone know where I can find a copy of the 1980 movie, Fighting Back, about Rocky Bleier?

It was aired on ABC, you might need to contact them in seeing if you can purchase a copy. I have not found a copy for sale anywhere. There is what possible 10 mins on it on the complete history of the steelers.

Thanks CC. I saw somewhere that ESPN aired it on a all Steelers weekend some time ago but, like you, I can't find it anywhere. I was hoping the folks visiting SteelersFever might be able to help. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Wow. I remember that made for TV movie. Almost as bad as the Star Wars Holiday Special. That movie is mostly for the legions of Robert Urich fans and/or plaid polyester sports jacket modeling.
Seriously, you're better off with the book, it's a really good read.

Any way I can get a copy? I don't remember much of it, but I didn't think it was that bad either.

i remember the movie. i saw it 2 or 3 times. the 1st time i was like 6 years old. i thought it was the greatest movie ever. mainly b/c of the real footage of the STEELERS that i never had seen before.

i saw it a few years ago on tv and realized that the acting wasn't the greatest. the "worst" part was when they would have him run with a limp in training camp. it's kinda funny.

anytime there is a movie about your favorite team you gotta love it.
