Taking Liberties With The Timeline

Those looking for an entertaining movie will find that in "12 Mighty Orphans", but only if you accept the liberties taken with the timeline. The movie portrays Rusty Russell arriving at the Masonic Home in 1938, putting together a football team and leading to an apperance in the state championship that season. In reality Coach Russell arrived at the Masonic Home in 1926. He built the program into a quality outfit that reached the state championship game against Corsicana in 1932. That game ended in a scoreless draw with the state title awarded to Corsicana in the tie breaking system of penetrations inside the opponents 20 yard line. My guess is producers opted to take liberties with the timeline in order to insert President Franklin Delano Roosevelt into the story. In reality Coach Russell and his Mighty Mites made their only state championship apperance before FDR took over the White House. The movie is well worth watching. Stay seated to read the closing credits that complete the story. Then go back and research the rest of the story about the Masonic Home and the extraordinary circumstances of those young men and women who called the place their home.

Texas Feel Good Film

Based on a true story, this movie captures the true essence of the underdog. The Mighty Mites has a story to tell and Ty Roberts tells it.

I agree with another rater who stated some of the acting was hit and miss and definitely some of the forced accents were hard to endure but overall a great feel-good movie.

Not perfect, but damn near!

I love movies that are based on real events and I read the book that the film is based on.

It's too bad that there wasn't enough time to pack in more from the book. Still, a very moving and enjoyable film. Don't miss it.
