The Book of Manning DVD


After the ESPN airing of The Book of Manning -- the story of legendary Mississippians Archie and Olivia Manning and their sons, Cooper, Peyton, and Eli, who together became the first family of American football -- we received scores of inquiries for "the book" of The Book of Manning. There is no such book, though we think it would be a good idea if there were, but there is, or will be by October 29, a 77-minute DVD ($14.95), for which we are now taking orders. 

Narrated by John Goodman, The Book of Manning features revealing interviews with family members, friends, former teammates and coaches as well as photos and home movie footage of Archie and his sons. Through it all, director Rory Karpf explores how a tragedy shaped the course of not only Archie's life, but his family's as well.
