Known Trivia

  • Howard Baldwin and wife Karen developed this project after their hit Ray. They commented on how impossible it was to get an African-American bio pic made.
  • The role of Branch Rickey was originally intended for Robert Redford.
  • The Birmingham (Alabama) News reported that Birmingham’s Rickwood Field, the oldest surviving professional baseball field in the US, was “playing” three different roles in this movie: it was doubling for Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, New Jersey, and Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, both of which no longer exist; and it was also “playing” itself, in a scene recreating the time in 1945 when Jackie Robinson played at Rickwood as a member of the Kansas City Monarchs.
  • A Broadway musical about Jackie Robinson called ‘The First,’ with the book by longtime New York TV critic ‘Joel Siegel’ and music by composer Martin Charnin of ‘Annie’ fame, lasted only 37 performances on The Great White Way in Nov.-Dec., 1981. It starred then newcomer David Alan Grier as Jackie.
  • Spike Lee had tried to make a film about the life of Jackie Robinson in 1995 with Denzel Washington as Robinson but the project never got off the ground.
