Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story, USA, 2013, 71 min (World Premiere)
A gambling scandal -- one he had no part of -- shatters New York's brightest young basketball star. Kicked out of college, banned by the NBA, he spends the next six years working the nightshift in a Dayton, Ohio, GM plant before the Indiana Pacers of the rogue ABA make him their first player. He becomes a star, a three-time champ, a City Councilman, a civic icon. But he dies too young, stricken by cancer, tormented to the end by what-could-have-been laments. A once-magical name fades into obscurity -- until now. In September, Roger Brown will be belatedly enshrined in the Naismith Hall of Fame. See the film that helped make that happen. Stars include Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, Bill Cosby, Julius Erving, Bob Costas, and more. Suitable for a general audience.
