Thursday To-Do: 'The Big Shootout'

'THE BIG SHOOTOUT'
7:30 p.m. Clinton Presidential Center Great Hall. $25.

Let's be honest, it hasn't exactly been Hog heaven lately. Razorback diehards are still a bit bummed over the indignity of getting dumped from the Thanksgiving showdown with LSU. [Ed. note: This won't happen until the 2014 season, and many of us aren't really all that concerned about it.]

Can Coach Bret Bielema restore Arkansas football to its once-great heights this season? We'll see. In the meantime, here's a chance to remember the glory days when the Razorbacks — and their rivalry with Texas — dominated the football world. The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival will host a kickoff in Little Rock, and in addition to various festival announcements, there will be a special advance screening of "The Big Shootout: The Life & Times of 1969," a look back at college football's "Game of the Century" between Texas and Arkansas and the tumultuous times in which it was played.

Director Mike Looney will be in attendance, as well as players and coaches that participated in the game, including former Arkansas coach Frank Broyles and former Longhorn QB James Street. Might want to show up early for some mingling. Call 661-1037 for ticket information.
