The movie 42 is a biographical drama on DVD about Jackie Robinson, a Hall of Fame baseball player who broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. In 1946, Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) is a Negro League baseball player who never takes racism lying down. Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) is a Major League team executive with a bold idea. To that end, Rickey recruits Robinson to break the unspoken color line as the first modern African American Major League player. As both anticipate, this proves a major challenge for Robinson and his family as they endure unrelenting racist hostility on and off the field, from player and fan alike. As Jackie struggles against his nature to endure such abuse without complaint, he finds allies and hope where he least expects it.

Player Biography
In 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the major leagues’ unwritten color barrier, becoming the first black player in the 20th century. Teammate and Hall of Famer Duke Snider called him “the greatest competitor I’ve ever seen.” Robinson was selected by Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey not only for the skills he brought to the field, but also those he possessed off it. A man of great character, Robinson lettered in four sports at UCLA before becoming an officer in the U.S. Army during World War II. In 1997, Robinson was honored posthumously when Major League Baseball universally retired his uniform number, 42.
