Colts: The Complete History is a tale of two cities. The first disc is a 65-minute history of the team in Baltimore, from its woeful start in the 1950s to the building of a powerhouse led by coach Weeb Ewbank, Alan Ameche, and ninth-round draft pick Johnny Unitas. They went on to the 1958 championship, later dubbed "the greatest game ever played," and were embraced by the blue-collar town. Later years included Super Bowl III under new coach Don Shula, the last-minute thrills of Super Bowl V, Joe Thomas's subsequent dismantling of the team that led to Unitas' final game in Baltimore, the dawning of the Bert Jones and Ted Marchibroda era, and, on March 28, 1984, the Mayflower vans that departed for Indianapolis. Among the interviewees are WR Raymond Berry, DT Art Donovan, DE Gino Marchetti, coach Don Shula, RB Lenny Moore, and executive Ernie Accorsi. Filling out disc 1 are 54 minutes of featurettes and an hourlong "Greatest Games" spotlight on the 1958 championship.

The 45-minute history on disc 2 focuses on the Colts' 1984 welcome to Indianapolis and the subsequent development of the team. Again starting with some lean years, the Colts traded for Eric Dickerson and drafted Jeff George, Steve Emtman, and Marshall Faulk. After a run to the 1995 AFC Championship game, the arrival of superstars Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, and Edgerrin James as well as coach Tony Dungy helped the Colts battle the Steelers in the January 2006 playoffs. Interviewees include Marchibroda, Jim Harbaugh, and Jim Irsay, the son of the team's late owner, Robert Irsay, but none of the current players. The 140 minutes of bonus features include the 2003 "Monday Night Miracle" when Dungy returned to Tampa Bay, the 2005 Game of the Week in which Manning and Harrison made history, an interview with Manning, and shorter pieces on coach Jim Mora (discussing his infamous meltdowns), and Dwight Freeney. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

The names are legendary - Unitas and Berry, Manning and Harrison, Shula and Dungy. The games -- from the "GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED", to the "MIDNIGHT MIRACLE" are unforgettable. Now NFL Films brings them all to you as part of the "History of the Colts" DVD. Disc one brings you the full history of the team's BALTIMORE era, including the 1958 and '59 Champions and the incredible story of Super Bowl V. Disc two details the Colts arrival in the HOOSIER state, the incredible would-be comeback in the 1995 AFC Championship Game and the high-flying Peyton Manning era. With over six hours of action spanning more than 50 years of Colts Football, "THE HISTORY OF THE COLTS" DVD is a must-have for any pro football fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT dvd set ! November 15, 2006
The first dvd is fantastic. It covers the history of the BALTIMORE Colts (1953-1983) and should be seen by every football fan. This dvd really shows what the Colts meant to that city, and what a great team they were. By the way, dont miss the extras: they alone are worth the cost of the dvds. In these extras there are excellent bios of the great Colts: Unitas, Berry, Curtis, Mackey, etc., plus a very well done story of the 1967 Colts, who were one of the greatest teams not to make the playoffs, and the 1958 NFL Championship in its entirety, which I think is the best NFL Films presentation of all time, and that's saying something.

The second dvd is very good too, covering the history of the INDIANAPOLIS Colts. Its extras are good too: including the Monday Night Miracle comeback and bios of Manning, Mora and others. I liked it very much, but Baltimore fans can be forgiven for using this second dvd as a drink coaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding work February 14, 2007
Verified Purchase
Being Baltimore Born and Baltimore Bred, I can not claim any positive feelings toward the Indianapolis Colts. But my love for the Baltimore Colts continues. I was a little gunshy getting this DVD because I was afraid it would be too Indy based. But NFL Films did a wonderful job of separating the Colt eras. The 65 minute profile of the Baltimore Colts is fantastic. But what makes it even better are the special features, including the OUTSTANDING NFL Films profile on the '58 Championship Game. I will cherish the Baltimore DVD for the rest of my life. The Indy DVD is in the hands of a co-worker who likes the Irsay Colts (that still hurts), so we are both winners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baltimore's Team November 29, 2008
Verified Purchase
Disk #1 is great! Worth the price even though the second disk comes as a bonus. If you were ever a true Baltimore Colts fan, you really need to own this DVD Set. It took 15 years to become a Colts fan again as I really enjoy watching Manning. Reminds me of the the days I spent biting my nails over what Johnny U was going to do next. The second disk was OK until they gave a hero's recognition to Irsay, honoring that fat drunken lush in their ring of fame. The best thing that man ever did was die and to honor him as some sort of savior was ludicrous. Disk #2 is a true bike reflector!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rating only the "Baltimore" part. January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Being a lifelong Baltimore Colts fan, when this DVD first came out, I viewed it with both curiosity and disdain. I'm an avid collector of NFL films material, so my initial thought was that this was just going to be a recycled collection of snippets and short summaries that had appeared on other NFL compilations (Such as "Gift of Grab" or "The Quarterbacks"), and that this was going to be a waste of money. However, when the price of the video in the new section had dropped down to below $2.00, I thought "why not." Surprisingly, I was pleased that I made the purchase, as a great deal of material going over the Colts history, I had not seen before. Typically, the DVD goes into the formation of the Colts in 1948 (was surprised that they started with the AAFC material, as I thought that this might be overlooked and that it would start only with the year after the "Dallas Texans" debacle . .so give NFL films credit for adding this in) all the way until that day that I would like to forget (3-28-84). The late 50's and 60's are given generous coverage, and the last real vestige of great Colt teams in the mid-70's is also given their just due. The extra content is what really makes this DVD however. Yes, there were recycled pieces of Jimmy Orr, Big Daddy Lipscomb and John Mackey from previous NFL VHS's & DVD's, but the updated content of Raymond Berry, Memorial Stadium and the '67 Colts were a welcome sight. And the extensive coverage of the '58 Championship Game was a great bonus. It covered the entire game, and though not every play, it was thorough enough to get an idea of what the game was truly like, and the turning points which impacted the overall result as well. Could there have been a bit more added? Yes, of course. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars When the Baltimore Colts were America's team! November 22, 2011
By Mike
This is an NFL films DVD. It is excellent. It is a wonderful source of history for those of us that loved the Baltimore Colts. Thanks to NFL films for making this a 2 DVD set. The Baltimore Colts DVD is cherished. The Indianapolis Irsay DVD was buried in the landfill where it belongs. Go Ravens.
