Upon viewing the film The Jackie Robinson Story one can only ask the question was it really like that Was Jackie harrassed and tormented by virtually everyone but a select few This paper will discuss the effectiveness or non-effectiveness of the film and include ideas based on the whether or not the film accurately portrays Jackies life story I will not only discuss the events of his childhood but also his life as a grown individualI should first start out by saying that in my opinion the show was very effective at the way that society in general percieved Black Americans At the beginning of the show it shows many young boys receiving ground balls from their baseball coach A young Jackie Robinson was standing on second base and asked politely for his turn Immediately one coach said to another Watch this and proceded to hit a screaming ground ball in his direction Well Jackie being as well as he was proceded to field the ball and throw it back to the coach as if it were routine to him Once again the coach said Well watch this one once again he hit a screaming ground ball that most kids in high school would not stand in front of but once again Jackie stabbed it and returned it properly to his coach This amazed the coach and not only did it amaze him but also for everyone that witnessed the occurance What was the big deal you ask Well he did it without even having a glove on either hand You see Jackie was to poor to own his own mit This example shows the what the normal reaction of most caucations was back in the late 1920s and through the later The majority at this time was caucasion and if you were black you were looked upon as not even qualifing as a human being This can also be seen later in the movie
