Episode Summary

EDIT
NFL Films Style
AIRED:
Steve Sabol now introduces the show from Music Scoring Studio A of the new NFL Films facility to talk about how NFL Films developed their style over time. It began as an extension of the newsreel, but in short order evolved into the standard by which others are judged. Key to their growth were a narrator named John Facenda, a musician named Sam Spence, and a film titled They Call It Pro Football, edited by Yoshio Kishi.moreless

      • Some of the edits NFL Network made to make this program fit in the time allotted, disrupt the flow of the contents. Among the information deleted was the fact that Tel Ra had been the producer of sports highlight shows during the 1950s and 1960s.

      • Additional cuts by NFL Network deleted a scene from a Jayne Mansfield movie and the opening to an episode of CBS's Everybody Loves Raymond in which Sam Spence's "Up She Rises" plays.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Ray Scott: Milt Plum pegs a peach of a pass…
        In their early years, NFL Films's team highlights were influenced by the pastry-type flakiness of Tel Ra films. That company used alliterative scripts, with lines such as the one NFL Films used again to describe the Detroit Lions' quarterback, Milt Plum. (This sequence has been dwindled down when seen on NFL Network, and as such the definition of Tel Ra, not to mention the flow of the piece, is lost.)
