Brooklyn Dodgers: The Ghosts Of Flatbush will examine the team's excellence in the National League, as well as their persistent problems competing against their archrivals from the American League, the New York Yankees.
Capturing the unique relationship between the Dodgers and the borough of Brooklyn, the film recalls the controversial decision that dismayed their fans. As the sport became the nation's pastime, the Dodgers' antiquated Ebbets Field grew insufficient, leading to team owner Walter O'Malley's decision to relocate the beloved franchise to Los Angeles in 1957.
The film uses archival footage and revealing interviews, featuring: Jackie Robinson's widow, Rachel Robinson; former players; former Dodgers general manager Emil J. "Buzzie" Bavasi; former Dodgers owner Peter O'Malley; television commentator Larry King; comedian Pat Cooper; among others.
