GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - The men that played for Vince Lombardi are giving the film about the legendary Packers coach rave reviews. The HBO documentary "Lombardi" premiered at Lambeau Field Thursday night.
Producer Joe Levine says that telling the coach's story was something they couldn't pass up.
"He was more than a coach," Levine said. "I know this sounds cliche, but he was a molder of men."
1960s Packers greats Bart Starr, Jerry Kramer, and Dave Robinson all came to the premiere. Starr says the film captured all sides of Lombardi, not just the disciplinarian you usually see in the media.
"I was very, very pleased that they had taken the time and did the job they did with it," Starr said.
"Lombardi" hits the small screen Saturday, December 11 on HBO.
