About Tose: The Movie

Film Summary

The late Leonard Tose was a genius and a fool, a saint and a sinner, a larger-than-life character worthy of a motion picture. In fact, veteran producer and director Mike Tollin tried to sell Hollywood on a biopic about the former Philadelphia Eagles owner. Foiled in that attempt, Tollin has directed and narrated this amusing and touching tribute to the man who got the Eagles to their first Super Bowl. Produced in conjunction with NFL Films, Tose is the story of a man who had it all and then lost most of it. But he remains, in the eyes of his former quarterback Ron Jaworski, "the best owner in football."
