In 1993, TRISTAR Productions immortalized his life story with the blockbuster film, Rudy. Written and produced by Angelo Pizzo and David Anspaugh, the award-winning team who brought us Hoosiers, the critically acclaimed Rudy received "Two Thumbs Up" from Siskel and Ebert and continues to inspire millions worldwide.
