Plot Summary:

Robert Redford has been trying to get a film about Jackie Robinson off the ground that would have him playing Brooklyn Dodgers manager Branch Rickey who discovered and signed baseball great Jackie Robinson. The film will deal with the complex relationship between Rickey and Robinson rather than focusing on Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in baseball after signing to the Dodgers in 1945.
