    • TRIVIA (1)

      • As the Notes for this episode explains, ESPN Classic re-edited the ending of this program, taking out footage of Unitas's role in the Disney film Gus. What ESPN Classic did not remove was the acknowledgment to Walt Disney Pictures in the "Courtesy" caption at show's end.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (2)

      • The original version of this program featured a fragment of Unitas's role as a sportscaster in the Disney film Gus. When ESPN Classic re-edited the program upon Unitas's death in September 2002, the Gus footage was discarded to make way for (among other things) Raymond Berry's eulogy.

      • Includes rare color footage of the 1959 NFL Championship Game at Baltimore, which the Colts won 31-16.
