One of the great adventurers of the 20th Century, George Plimpton embarked on a lifelong journey akin to fictional characters such as Forrest Gump and Indiana Jones. He hung out with U.S. Presidents, played quarterback for the Detroit Lions, forced Willie Mays to pop out in Yankee Stadium, photographed Playboy models, was named the “Most Eligible Bachelor in Manhattan” by Esquire Magazine, played goalie for the Boston Bruins, struck the triangle for the New York Philharmonic and acted alongside John Wayne, Warren Beatty, and Matt Damon. Some of these things he did well. Some he didn’t. But they were always amusing and inspiring. In English. Not Rated. Directors: Tom Bean, Luke Poling (US 2012) 85 min.
