This classic Drew Associates documentary from 1961 is one of the first to portray football as a social and cultural phenomenon. Concentrating on the state high school championship held at the Orange Bowl in Miami, “Mooney vs. Fowle” follows two coaches – Heywood Fowle of Edison High and Otis Mooney of Miami High – as they prepare their teams for a legendary showdown. Built up over 40 years, the rivalry between the two schools has reached a fever pitch that draws more than 40,000 spectators. Vividly bringing to life the intensity, pressure and excitement swirling around one epic face-off, the film surveys the stakes of intense competition. Named an "Outstanding Film" at the 1962 London Film Festival.
