One In A Million: The Ron LeFlore Story (1977)
















Starring:
  • LeVar Burton
  • Madge Sinclair
  • Paul Benjamin
Storyline
The film plays like a gritty documentary with nice character acting by LeVar Burton as Ron LeFlore. Without a doubt, the best Detroit Tiger film to date with great shots of old Tiger Stadium. Unlike the 1983 film Tiger Town, The Ron LeFlore Story doesn't get bogged down by Disney-esque sentimentality. A truly inspiring film. As has already been pointed out, this is an excellent made for TV classic. Sure, the film quality of this 70's movie is dated, but nothing beats a superb cameo appearance by the firey Billy Martin acting as himself.
