Matthew Martens's rating of the film Harvard Beats Yale 29-29

4 stars may seem generous for a film about an old Ivy League football game, but it easily earns them once you overcome that hurdle. One thing that emerges from the mass of consistently engaging talking heads is that Harvard, at least at the time, at least wrt its football team, was the more proletarian school. (Notable Yale chant: "You're number 2!") Also notable: this was 1968. And Tommy Lee Jones is a curious man.
