The Male Animal

Elliott Nugent, 1942

College Football on Film

To say college football is popular in Columbus is a gross understatement, but the sport was arguably even more popular across the country in the 1920s and 30s. This five-film series reflects Hollywood's interest in the sport at the time and suggests that many of the problems facing college athletics today existed decades ago.

The Male Animal features Henry Fonda as a popular professor at Midwestern University who faces dismissal for his outspoken views. Based on the play by Columbus native James Thurber, the film references Central Ohio locales and unfolds during homecoming weekend and a match against hated rival Michigan. (101 mins., 35mm)
