Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film includes harsh language and imagery emerging from U.S. racism during the 1960s. Characters argue about terms used (spoken and written, in letters and graffiti) include the n-word, "Negro," "colored," and "honky." The Confederate flag appears in multiple shots during the final game. Characters' arguments over race and their on-court competitions lead to shoving and fighting. Some of the game footage shows minor rough play. Players sneak off to drink at a bar and appear at practice the next day hung over. Some white fans at games on the road throw trash at the integrated team as they enter and leave the court. One black player is beaten by a few white thugs, leaving him bloodied and bruised.

Sexual Content

Bobby Joe sneaks off to see his grlfriend; some background girls wear skimpy clothing.

Violence

Roughhousing among players; beating in a diner bathroom leaves one player badly bloodied.

Language

Minor cursing, but salient use of n-word, to showcase the racism players were up against.

Social Behavior

Players are dedicated; those racists who decry their interracial team are plainly demonized.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking in a bar, where characters smoke in the background, some comments made ("What are you smoking?").
