NFL FILMS -- BACK IN THE DAY
Alan B. Fecteau | VALDOSTA, GA | 01/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you're looking for a negative review, about anything produced by NFL Films, from this reviewer, you are going to be looking for a long time. I love just about all their stuff, particularly from the 1960s and 1970s -- the golden era(s) of NFL Films and the NFL.
This 3-disc set is classic NFL at its best. There are various highlight films from the 60s and 70s, with episodes of the popular "Lost Treasures" series, produced for NFL Network, provided as Bonus material.
One feature on each disc includes a "commentary" option, where you can play the program while at the same time listening to Steve Sabol, of NFL Films, spin stories about what you are looking at. It's not as annoying as you might think ... :-)

Gimme That Old-Time NFL!!!

"This collection of NFL Films programs from the 1960s and 1970s are fantastic!
They take you back to an age when the NFL was humbler and the game was more fun.
You actually get a chance to see what pro football looked like when men named Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, and Jim Brown played.
I have 2 very minor criticisms, though:
1. If you have the DVDs of all the Super Bowls like I do, some of the films are included in those sets. However, these DVDs make accessing them easier.
2. Steve Sabol's intros to the films are too reverential and gushing. Part of me wanted to cry tears of joy, and the other part wanted to laugh at their artificiality.
Pro football of the 60's & 70's - for love of the game

"When you have the Sabols and all the crew members of NFL FILMS capturing all the actions on the football field, coaches and players along the sidelines, fans in the stands, and in all kinds of "football" weather,
with the music from Sam Spence, and then the naration from John Facenda,
when it all comes together ---- poetry in motion.
Great NFL historical archive collection

"If you are a fan of the NFL and football, you got to get this DVD collection. It is an incredible collection of very old NFL Films movie productions from the 60s and 70s. I vaguely remember seeing some of these when I was younger and never thought I would have the opportunity to see them again until now. There is an abundant amount of game film and interviews. It is really cool to see the old heroes of the NFL in action such as Fran Tarkenton, Jim Brown, Lance Alworth, Johnny Unitas, Gale Sayers, etc.
I also believe that the Steve Sabol introductions to each and every feature is a bit much but he does explain the purpose and intention of each film creation done by NFL Films and his father Ed."
