#66 - "Wildcats" (1986) with Ron West

#66 -

Molly McGrath is the adult daughter of a famed football coach who is desperate to be the head coach of her own team. When her wish is finally granted, Molly leaves her job coaching girls' track at an affluent high school to take over a football team at an inner-city Chicago high school —the kind of place where guard dogs are needed to patrol the campus. At first the new coach's idealism and optimism are suffocated with racial and gender prejudice, but eventually her overriding spirit begins to whip her unruly team into shape in this formulaic 80’s football flick. So grab your your engraved stopwatch, leave your mark on the school locker, and put the cat costume on the dog to stand in as the school mascot as Tim Williams and guest co-host, Ron West, discuss “Wildcats” from 1986 on this episode of the 80’s Flick Flashback Podcast! Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode: The filming for the movie was done during the summer. Extras were asked to show up in winter gear and act like it was cold out. The temperature was in the eighties on the days of filming.
