TBT - Inspiring documentary captures the essence of crew racing--and indeed amateur athletics in general as performed at the highest levels--and what some consider to be the finest American rowing team ever. Life Magazine hailed them as “The Great Eight,” and the name stuck.

The film profiles legendary U.S. Naval Academy coach Russell "Rusty" Callow and his heavyweight varsity eight. After winning only one race in 1951, the underdog Midshipmen took college rowing by surprise, going unbeaten in 1952, 1953, and 1954. The 1952 boat was the U.S. Olympic crew and shocked the world by winning gold in Helsinki vs. a Soviet crew known as much for their dominating power as for their unconventional technique. During those three seasons, Navy’s "Admirals" won 23 consecutive collegiate races (29 victories overall) and three straight IRA National Championships. The film features rare archival footage, 1990s on-camera reminiscences by team members, and where-are-they-now vignettes.

Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Gregory Peck, who has said that rowing for Berkeley High School and the University of California taught him “camaraderie, making an effort, sticking to it, not quitting." He's also quoted: "It's the most grueling sport known in college. It's a sport where strong men faint as they go over the finish line because they have spent every last ounce of their strength and consciousness. Your chest feels like cement, your legs feel like rubber, your mind is numb, your back feels broken, but you learn never to give up. Anyone who's rowed a four-mile race knows what's expected of him. He understands the agony of the last mile or half mile, and the knowledge that you can't quit, even if you die. That has to have some effect on his character."

Producer "Wisteria Pictures" released the film in 1996 on VHS tape, unfortunately is no longer in business. This important piece of American history was never released on DVD. A copy of the tape is among the holdings of the Naval Academy library, can also be borrowed from the Wayland-Weston Crew video library. Used copies can sometimes be found for sale from online sources.

Enjoy "The Great Eight!"
