Vince Lombardi’s last three games as coach of the Green Bay Packers – the 1967 Western Conference Championship vs the Los Angeles Rams (also includes Eastern Conference Championship Game, Dallas Cowboys vs Cleveland Browns), the 1967 NFL Title Game (now often referred to as “The Ice Bowl”) and the second Pro Football World Championship Game vs the Oakland Raiders are all here on this new DVD from Rare Sportsfilms, Inc! All three original films have been restored by Rare Sportsfilms and all are in COLOR on this one DVD for nostalgic viewing (running time: 1 hour, 21 minutes). The original TV broadcasts of these games were never saved by the NFL or the networks, and this is the only footage that you will ever see of each of these games! The films show how the Packers and the Cowboys made it to the NFL Championship Game, and then how the Packers, coached by the legendary Vince Lombardi, went on to beat the Raiders to become World Champions for the third year in a row!
Western Conference Championship at County Stadium, Milwaukee - In Saturday’s NFL Western Conference Championship Game, Lombardi’s Packers host coach George Allen's Los Angeles Rams. After jumping on top 7-0, the Rams have first and goal and the Packer 10, but three downs later Bruce Gossett’s FG try is blocked, but Rams still lead, 7-0. Rookie Travis Williams’ 46-yard TD run ties the score, and later a pass from Bart Starr to Carroll Dale puts the Packers up 14-7 at the half. Chuck Mercein’s TD run gives the Packers a 21-7 lead at the end of three quarters. In the fourth quarter Travis Williams’ 2-yd TD run after another long Starr to Dale completion enables Green Bay to beat the Rams 28-7.
Eastern Conference Championship at the Cotton Bowl - Next day in Dallas a pair of TD’s by Don Perkins, three by Craig Baynham, an 86-yd interception return by Cornell Green and an 86-yd TD pass reception by Bob Hayes swamp Frank Ryan, Leroy Kelly and the Browns 52-7. So, it’s the Cowboys vs Packers next week at Lambeau Field, Green Bay for the NFL Championship!
1967 NFL Title Game (the “Ice Bowl”) at Lambeau Field – In this legendary game, Bart Starr and Boyd Dowler hook up on two TD scoring passes, and Green Bay has a 14-0 lead by early in the second quarter. At that point, the game begins to turn in Dallas’ favor. A Starr fumble is picked up by George Andre and taken into the end zone for the first Dallas points. Later a muffed punt by Willie Wood leads to a 21-yd FG by Danny Villanueva, and Dallas trails at halftime by only 14-10. The Cowboys dominate play in the third quarter, holding the Packers scoreless and on the first play of the final quarter Dan Reeves throws a surprise halfback option pass to Lance Rentzel for the go-ahead score and the Cowboys lead, 17-14. The Cowboys cannot run out the clock or score again however, and after a missed FG attempt by Don Chandler, the Packers again get the ball back with about 5 minutes left. Starr and Donny Anderson move the team into Dallas territory and 19 and 9 yard runs by Chuck Mercein bring the ball to within a yard of the goal line with only seconds left. Jerry Kramer’s famous block opens the way for Starr to sneak in on 4th down, and the Packers win the most exciting NFL Title game since the Colts’ overtime victory in 1958! This film and Superbowl II are both narrated by William Woodson.
SUPERBOWL II at the Orange Bowl, Miami – This film begins with an introduction by Frank Gifford, then presents the game with an analytical style, showing how the Packers beat the AFL Champion Oakland Raiders. Two crucial first half mistakes hurt the Raiders chances in their up-hill battle over the favored Packers, and these plays and others throughout the film are re-shown from different angles. After the game, locker room interviews with Boyd Dowler, Willie Davis, Henry Jordan and Coach Lombardi of the Packers, and coach John Rauch, Daryle Lamonica, Pete Banaszak, Harry Schuh, Howie Williams and Ben Davidson of the Raiders give insight into what went on during the game and their thoughts on the Packers winning their second Super Bowl. The end of the film is a tribute to coach Lombardi with remarks by guard Jerry Kramer.
