John Cusack, Charlie Sheen, D.B. Sweeney. Long before Barry Bonds, the Mitchell Report and the steroids scandal that rocked baseball, there were the Black Sox of 1919-a group of players including Buck Weaver, Lefty Williams, Shaless Ja Jackson and Happy Felsch who later admitted to fixing the World Series, intentionally throwing games in exchange for a share of gamblers' profits. This is their story, as dramatized by John Sayles and adapted from the 1963 novel by Eliot Asinof. 1988/color/120 min/PG.
