Editorial Reviews

A thrilling entertainment that traces the extraordinary life and career of one of our greatest heroes, Jackie Robinson: My Story is a cinematic home run. Chronicling tragedy, triumph, dignity and great courage, this is the story of a man who changed the course of American history.


This award-winning film tells his story like it’s never been told before: The setting is the Dodger clubhouse at historic and legendary Ebbets Field. Jackie (Stephen Hill), in his early thirties and the prime of his baseball career, appears in the clubhouse. He recounts his remarkable story with classic footage and rare photos of the people and events that helped define his groundbreaking career and inspiring life.


Featuring guest appearances by Jackie’s Dodger teammates Don Newcombe, Clem Labine and Carl Erskine in the film’s prologue, Jackie Robinson: A Life Story won the Best Picture Award at both the Long Island International Film Expo and the Garden State Film Festival.

4.0 out of 5 stars And here's to you, Jackie Robinson... April 3, 2013
Format:DVD
Before you go see the upcoming big screen "42," starring Harrison Ford, Christopher Meloni and Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson, you may want to see this award-winning documentary about the real Robinson. "Jackie Robinson: My Story" tells his life story ithrough rare footage and photographs from real life.

And it gives you an intense performance of Stephen Hill (Dead Man Down). "My Story" is just that. In a locker room setting, Hill as Robinson materializes to discuss his life and times directly to the camera -- to you, to young people.

This is a remarkable story about a towering American icon, not only of baseball, but of political activism, civil rights, the media and the changing times. The account is direct and honest, not only about Robinson's struggle to equality that seemed impossible at the time, but also of his issues with his people, his family and his son.

Hill's performance is understated, straightforward and matter-of-fact, which makes the moment he reflects on the loss of his son all the more effective. It should be noted that some language, particular racial slurs, are heard in this film, vicious things that were said in a less enlightened time.

As a production of limited budget but a lot of heart, "My Story" makes fine use of its source material. Even the music seems to fit the sequences.

The bonus feature, "Jackie Robinson: An American Hero" is a shorter version of the feature, using much of the same sources and a condensed edition of the same script. Perhaps this was created for groups and schools. It contains none of the offensive phrases heard in the other film.

Warren Schaeffer, who was also Director of Photography of "My Story," narrates offscreen.

I thought I was ordering the new release, not this documentary. I'll try for the real movie when it's available.
