Rain Delay Theatre: Watch ‘The Jackie Robinson Story’ with us

David Brown

Just because Major League Baseball honchos postponed the World Series until Thursday night doesn't mean fans must go another night without their favorite sport. It might not be Game 6 between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium, but how about a little historical docudrama starring the great Jackie Robinson as ... himself?

Yep, "The Jackie Robinson Story" is a real movie that also stars real actors — although the gorgeous Ruby Dee (as the even more gorgeous Rachel Robinson) is the only one I've heard of. It was made in 1950, and it's a tad dated in some ways, but it means well. The Stew presents it now, free of charge. Welcome to Rain Delay Theatre:
