The Grandstand Franchise — Part IV

Here is the next installment from our series about the film “The Grandstand Franchise.” Above, Coach Curly Lambeau is seen on the sideline in City Stadium.

A close-up of Lambeau in a detail from a famous photo of him walking out of Rockwood Lodge. A large portrait of this image hangs in the main stairwell leading to Curly’s Pub in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

A scene from the 1937 film, “Pigskin Champions.”

We know what you’re thinking… no, that is not who you think it is at QB.

Above and below, a couple more photos of Lambeau on the sidelines.

Lambeau made the Packers the first N.F.L. team to use air travel to games.
