    12 MIGHTY ORPHANS tells the true story of the Mighty Mites, the football team of a Fort Worth orphanage who, during the Great Depression, went from playing without shoes—or even a football—to playing for the Texas state championships. Over the course of their winning season these underdogs and their resilient spirit became an inspiration to their city, state, and an entire nation in need of a rebound, even catching the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The architect of their success was Rusty Russell, a legendary high school coach who shocked his colleagues by giving up a privileged position so he could teach and coach at an orphanage. Few knew Rusty’s secret: that he himself was an orphan. Recognizing that his scrawny players couldn’t beat the other teams with brawn, Rusty developed innovative strategies that would come to define modern football.

    Frank Zappa: Eat That Question

    The official audio companion to the Sony Pictures Classics documentary, EAT THAT QUESTION: Frank Zappa in His Own Words, produced and hosted by Paul Chuffo (Joyride Media).

    EAT THAT QUESTION is an hilarious, all-archival footage portrait of legendary rock star / composer Frank Zappa – from his 1963 clean-cut appearance on The Steve Allen Show, to full counter-culture freaky regalia, as leader of the Mothers of Invention.  

    Besides Zappa’s own words excerpted from the film, content includes comments from his family (daughter Moon Zappa), friends (Chuck Ash), bandmates (Mike Keneally, Al Malkin) and fans (Jake Cinninger of Umphrey’s McGee), from interviews conducted exclusively for this project upon the film’ 2016 theatrical release.

    Click play button above to hear the spoken content only on this page. Full Spotify Music + Talk version with these segments and 20 Frank Zappa classics is available only on Spotify.

    The film EAT THAT QUESTION: Frank Zappa in His Own Words is now available for rent/buy streaming from many providers.
