  ...But I remembered it as The Mean Machine!?
  The original prison football movie directed by Robert Aldrich of Dirty Dozen and starring Burt Reynolds comes to Special Edition DVD this September (as the remake starring Adam Sandler hits theatres).

Burt Reynolds stars as Paul Crewe, an ex-football player serving time in a prison run by a sports-mad warden. Blackmailed into training a group of inmates up to play the prison guards in a football game for a pardon, Crewe whips the inmates’ team into shape. The motley group of criminals pull together in time for the big game – but their captain is presented with a dilemma. His get out of jail free card is at risk when the sadistic warden demands Crewe throw the game and let the guards’ team win. The fantastic football game that follows brings the film to an exciting conclusion.

This Special Edition is out on the 5th September.
