Knute Rockne: All American is the story of an intelligent young man who uses his mind to become one of the most acclaimed coaches in the history of Notre Dame football. The young Rockne (Pat O'Brien) was always interested in football, but found that he had a love for chemistry as well and begins the film studying at Notre Dame University. However, the pull of the gridiron outweighed his motivation to become a chemist and he turned his attention into making the Irish the best football team it could be as the head coach. Many years later, he became the winningest head football coach in America at the time and even invented a new play scheme called the 'tactical shift, ' which is still used today. Due to the inspirational tone that is maintained throughout Knute Rockne: All American, the film is one of the few to earn the honor of being inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry.moreless
