As promised last fall, the new Jackie Robinson biopic, 42, is soon opening. Here is pretty much a rave from hardened society-and-film columnist Liz Smith. She is already talking Academy Award nominations, barely a month after the recent lackluster Oscars show—even as 2012 was one of the best years in memory for films. More to the point, the photos included in Liz’s column are not the same old same old, and there is other Jackie Robinson-related news in the piece. Robinson’s widow, going strong at ninety (he died prematurely, at fifty three), has much to say on the film. You’ll want to check out the trailer.
