The Cowboy in Prison and the Crimson Tide

The Rose Bowl football game played on Friday, January 1, 1926, is remembered as “The Game that Changed the South.” The Washington Huskies were invited to play, and for the first time in Rose Bowl history, a team from the South was invited to play. This was the first time that any football team from the South played in a bowl game. The 9-0 Alabama Crimson Tide had just finished its first undefeated season, and they were invited to play in the championship classic.

In the first quarter the Huskies scored 6 points, the Crimson Tide did not score. In the second quarter the Huskies scored 6 points and the Crimson Tide did not score. At half-time it appeared that the farm boys from Alabama were no match for the bigger and tougher Huskies from Washington State.

In the historic third quarter, quarterback Pooley Hubert of the Crimson Tide rushed five times in a row, ending with a one-yard touchdown run. The extra point kick was good, making the score 12 to 7. Then halfback Johnny Mack Brown caught a 59-yard pass for a touchdown, and with the extra point the score became Alabama 14 – Washington 12.

Then Washington fumbled the ball and Alabama had another chance to score. Johnny Mack Brown caught a 30-yard pass for another touchdown, but the kicker missed the extra point, making the score Alabama 20 – Washington 12. In the fourth quarter Alabama did not score, and Washington scored a touchdown and extra point, bringing the final score to: Alabama 20 – Washington 19.

Football star Johnny Mack Brown would graduate from College and instead of pursuing sports, would go to Hollywood to become a motion picture actor. In this adventure he is a cowboy in a small western town, and in the first scene we watch him rob a stage coach heading for town and hide the gold from the stage in a hollow tree nearby.

Unfortunately, his horse would lose a shoe, and the Sheriff would find the horseshoe, tracing it back to the cowboy. The cowboy admits his guilt and is sent to prison for twenty years. This isn’t the way most cowboy heroes begin a new adventure, but this is no ordinary cowboy hero. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
