2013 – 42

Director: Brian Helgeland
Writer: Brian Helgeland
Stars: Chadwick Boseman, T.R. Knight, Harrison Ford
Length: 2h 8min


這電影是講述在美國,一名黑人職業棒球員晉身主流白人球隊打球的真人真事,而這段歷史得以出現,是由主角的伯樂一手孕育而成,沒有領班Branch Rickey排除萬難的推動,肯定不能成事。再加上主角的沉穩表現,42號球衣號碼也因此在1997年開始由Jack Roosevelt Robinson專屬。


Maybe tomorrow, we’ll all wear 42, so nobody could tell us apart.Pee Wee Reese
It means someday you’re gonna meet God, and when he inquires as to why you didn’t take the field against Robinson in Philadelphia, and you answer that it’s because he was a Negro, it may not be a sufficient reply!Branch Rickey
I don’t care if they like me. I didn’t come here to make friends. I don’t even care if they respect me. I know who I am. I’ve got enough respect for myself. I do not want them to beat me.Jackie Robinson
People aren’t gonna like this. They’re gonna do anything to get you to react. Echo a curse with a curse and, uh, they’ll hear only yours. Follow a blow with a blow and they’ll say, “The Negro lost his temper.” That “The Negro does not belong.” Your enemy will be out in force… and you cannot meet him on his own low ground. We win with hitting, running, fielding. Only that. We win if the world is convinced of two things: That you are a fine gentleman and a great baseball player. Like our Savior… you gotta have the guts… to turn the other cheek. Can you do it?Branch Rickey
You give me a uniform… you give me a, heh, number on my back… and I’ll give you the guts.Jackie Robinson
Baseball was proof positive that democracy was real. A baseball box score after all, is a democratic thing. It doesn’t say how big you are, or what religion you follow it does not know how you voted, or the color of your skin, it simply states what kind of ballplayer you were on any particular day.Reporter
Why don’tcha look in a mirror? This is a white man’s game!Ben Chapman
I thought you woke me because, because I was cut from the team.Jackie Robinson
