Once In A Lifetime - The Extraordinary Story Of The New York Cosmos (2006)
Release Date: 01 January 2006
At the beginning of the 1970s, Warner Bros. mogul Steve Ross - a man who thrived on achieving the impossible - set himself the goal of bringing soccer to America, a country with its own brand of football. At first, Ross's team, the New York Cosmos, failed to draw the crowds, until the chairman signed international superstar Pele for a cool $5 million. This documentary melds archive footage and interviews with the key people of the era to relive the heady days when it seemed football might finally win the hearts of the American people.
