Film Summary
Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. "42" tells the story of two men -- the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey -- whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball. In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey's hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking-ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.

    Well, I went and saw the movie. Pretty good. And the theater was nice and new and the seats were very comfortable. Good big screen.

    But as far as I can tell, nobody else from My PC was there. I arrived at 6:45, waited, and at 6:57, bought my ticket and went into the theater.

      Sorry I missed meeting you, Bill. We usually meet as a group ahead of time in the lobby but this time we kind of straggled in, in separate little groups. (My friend and I were there at 6:45 pm, also, and did not see the others, either, so we went in and sat by ourselves.) The group met in the lobby - after the credits finished rolling - and chatted about the film. Glad you enjoyed the film; I did, too.

    Do I need to provide you with names of guests or is that no longer necessary?
