Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Quarterback is Jack Stone (Richard Dix), captain of the 1899 Colton College football team. Though by rights he should have graduated years before, Jack insists upon remaining at Colton until his team can defeat their bitter rivals at State University. Even the death of his wife Louise (Esther Ralston) does not deter our hero from his mission. Ultimately, Stone emerges triumphant, demonstrating a stick-to-it-tiveness that would have put a Vince Lombardi or Mike Ditka to shame! Though it sounds silly and contrived, The Quarterback is actually quite wonderful entertainment, thanks in great part to the knowing direction of Fred C. Newmeyer, himself a former professional athlete.
