Movie Preview: An All-star Cast brings a Depression era Football Tale to the screen — “12 Mighty Orphans”

It’s one of those pieces of early football history, like the legends of Pop Warner and Jim Thorpe and Knute Rockne and “The Gipper.”

“12 Mighty Orphans” recalls a Depression Era football team of over-achievers from a Texas orphanage.

Like Wilson, Vinessa Shaw, Martin Sheen, Treat Williams and Robert Duvall star in this June release from Sony Pictures Classics.
