Penn State All-Sports Museum To Show "Something For Joey"
STATE COLLEGE, Pa., December 9, 2004 - In conjunction with another Heisman Trophy selection this weekend, the movie "Something for Joey" is being shown in the Penn State All-Sports Museum Clemens Family Theatre. Admission to the museum is free.
The movie depicts the unique relationship between Penn State's Heisman Trophy winner, running back John Cappelletti, and his younger brother Joey, who died of leukemia.
When John accepted the Heisman Trophy at the annual awards dinner in 1973, his emotional speech about the illness of his younger brother captured the imagination of the country. The 1977 movie, featuring Geraldine Page and Marc Singer, won the Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Television Production.
"Something For Joey" will be shown in the museum's Clemens Family Theatre through Sunday, December 19. The museum will be open at its regular hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and Noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
