For the first time in their history, the Browns had a new head coach for 1963, and with Blanton Collier at the helm, Jimmy Brown entered the season in a much better frame of mind. When the season opened against the Redskins, he was almost unstoppable, and after only the first 8 games, he was already over 1,000 yards, and on his way to his greatest season! At the end of the year he had set a new record of 1,863 yards and was voted NFL MVP! This film is full of great runs by Brown, who helped the club go undefeated in its first six games and kept Cleveland in the Eastern Conference race until a loss at Detroit with a week to go knocked them out of contention. Quarterback Frank Ryan became the best Browns signal caller since the immortal Otto Graham, who had retired eight years before.
This rare 38-minute B & W film is narrated by the old voice of the Browns, Ken Coleman and presented by Sohio and Carling Black Label beer. You’ll see nice closeups of many Browns stars before the games during pre-game warm-ups: Starting QB Frank Ryan, Lou Groza, Jim Brown, Gary Collins, John Wooten, Bill Glass, Bob Gain, Rich Kreitling and Paul Wiggin. Other Browns shown in action throughout the film will also bring back nostalgic memories: Dick Schafrath, Jim Shorter, Galen Fiss, John Morrow, John Brewer, Bernie Parrish, Charlie Scales, Vince Costello, Ernie Green, Ross Fichtner, Gene Hickerson, Jim Houston, Larry Benz, Bobby Franklin, Mike Lucci, Jim Ninowski, Ernie Green, John Brown, Bobby Crespino, veteran Ray Renfro and rookie Tom Hutchinson. Not only will you see many games played at old Municipal Stadium, but you'll also follow the Browns on the road to other old ballparks which were the homes of several NFL teams nearly 40 years ago: Yankee Stadium, old Busch Stadium, Tiger Stadium and The Cotton Bowl. Of course, many stars are also shown on other teams as they play the Browns, such as Y.A. Tittle, Alex Webster, Del Shofner, Frank Gifford, Bobby Mitchell, Norm Snead, Pat Richter, King Hill, Sonny Jurgensen, Tim Brown, Eddie LeBaron, Don Meredith, Billy Barnes, Don Perkins, Pettis Norman, Frank Clarke, Charlie Johnson, Pat Fischer, Buddy Dial Earl Morrall and Terry Barr, to name a few!
