Longest Yard, The (1974) (DVD)
In this rough-and tumble movie, actually filmed on-location at the Georg ia State Prison, the cons are the heroes and the guards are the heavies. Eddie Albert is the sadistic warden who'll gladly make any sacrifice to push his guards' semi-pro football team to the national championship. B urt Reynolds plays one-time pro quarterback Paul Crewe, now behind bars for leading State Police on a wild c hase in a "borrowed car" and more. He agrees to organize a prisoners' team to play the guards. The warden i ntercedes to assure that his goon squad will meet only passive resistanc e from Crewe's "Mean Machine." But the license to pound on their hated g uards is a bi g incentive for murderers and thieves to learn strategy.]]>

I'm not a big Burt Reynolds fan, but when he had a decent script to work with he could shine in movies made for low brow audiences. I consider this a middling good movie which I know was loved by hard core football fans. It seemed like a safe gift. It was delivered a day before the estimated delivery date and arrived intact, so I would deal with the seller again.
