Editorial Reviews

Narrated by Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor John Goodman, OLE WAR SKULE: The Story of Saturday Night will dynamically illustrate the unique and rich history of the LSU football team, the fans, the players, the coaches and all of the peripheral support teams and partners who work together to create the incredible experience known only as LSU football. Unlike any other LSU football film, this film tells a comprehensive story from 1893 to present day of what really goes into creating Saturday Night at Tiger Stadium. The movie includes over 75 unique interviews from LSU coaches, Golden Band members, cheerleaders, football staff, coach s wives, and Tiger football greats such as Y.A. Tittle, Billy Cannon, Bert Jones, Jerry Stovall, Coach Miles, Coach Saban, Glen Dorsey, and many others. The film also includes different behind the scenes mini documentaries such as how the BCS National Championship trophies are made in Waterford, Ireland, how the National Championship rings are made by Balfour in Austin, Texas, how the field in Tiger Stadium is maintained and prepared for every game, in addition to many others! This cinematic feature length documentary isn t only about individual plays, hall of fame players, or particular games in the programs history. Instead this story tells the roots, brotherhood, and the development of many individuals that molded the program into what makes LSU football so special today.

If you've never been captivated by the magic of Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night, this documentary will bore you to tears. But if you've been there and grew up pulling for LSU and were there with your Dad and all the other screaming Tiger Fans, you will enjoy the history, the film clips, the interviews and will be pulled back in time as the memories come flooding back. The beginning is a bit slow and the old film reel interludes get old fast, but it picks up steam and you become grateful that someone got these people on film before more of them pass. Paul Dietzel, Billy Cannon, Jerry Stovall and so many of the old and new legends comment and tell interesting stories. Tommy Casanova, George Bevan, Bert Jones and all the great players from the 60's and 70's. Coach Mac. Nick Saban. Les Miles. John Ed Bradley was particularly eloquent. You only wish there were more clips and longer stories from all of these guys. The ladies wearing their dresses and high heels to games. Players playing both ways. It's a bygone era and this film will remind you of all that and more. Now, can someone tell me where to find one of those big, heavy bottom drinking glasses that had the 1958 games and scores on them. This film made me think of that glass that was in our house in the 60's and 70's and all the wonderful memories of cheering for the Tigers on Saturday Night in Death Valley (where it did rain on us once when we played Mississippi State in the 60's).

Old War Skule was one of those films that I'd wanted to see since I saw a billboard advertising it in Baton Rouge. As a LSU graduate I had spent many Saturdays in Tiger Stadium and I thought a film about LSU football history would be a good way to spend a weeknight. Little was I prepared for this three hour comprehensive history of the team.

Narrated by John Goodman in a folksy tone, the film covers the history of the team and it's coaches and players from 1893 until. 2007. The film also covers so much more that it's hard to know where to begin. We get the story of the band and it's music, some Louisiana politics curtesy of Huey Long and a good deal of what type of character it takes to both wear and play for the purple and gold.

The film is divided by decades and the story from the 1950's through the present is the most well covered. I remember many of the featured games and it was fun to see the highlights again. Who could forget Billy Cannon's run or the "bluegrass miracle" ? There are also interesting segments on the making of the championship trophy and rings.

If there is one shortfall here it is that the special features are only accessible online instead of on the disc itself. This is an excellent low priced feature that should be seen by LSU fans and college football fans in general. Highly recommended.

I got this for my dad for Christmas, and we watched it together Christmas morning. He couldn't pull himself away from the tv to go check on the turkey! I'm a huge Tigers fan (I was raised right!), my dad an even bigger fan. We both enjoyed it. Very informative and interesting. You learn a lot about the history of the game, the team. Coaches, players, and cheerleaders past and present talk about their experience (Hey Nick Saban!). You see the preparations before the game, old game footage, I could go on. John Goodman did an excellent job narrating this documentary. The fact that my dad who isn't into movies, sat down and watched this really says something! It's perfect for any LSU fan. Geaux Tigers!!!

I ordered this video for my brother-in-law since I had seen it before and thought it was great. It was shipped fast and they got it in good shape. I would recommend this video to anyone who likes LSU and would recommend this provider as well. Thank you!

Our whole family has enjoyed 'Ole War Skule' - the DVD - a History of LSU Football. I'd given my husband a gift certificate from Amazon for his birthday and one of the things he chose to get was this DVD. We recently loaned it to a friend who liked it so much he is ordering one of his own and one for his dad, an avid LSU football fan and season ticket holder for over 40 years. I'm sure this DVD will go viral!!! Geaux Tigers!
