Additional Details:
In the 1940 Warner Bros. movie "Knute Rockne - All American," a young Pat O'Brien portrayed the famed Notre Dame football coach, Knute Rockne, and an even younger Ronald Reagan played the role of star player George Gipp. At the end of the film, as Gipp lay on his death bed, Notre Dame was on the verge of baing defeated by the Army team, Rockne called out, "Win one for the Gipper" - a long remembered famous Pat O'Brien quote. Shown here, 21 years later, the two are reunited at Notre Dame during graduation ceremonies. May 17, 1981
