Yes, Philadelphia was yellow in the 1970s

Tomorrow night, as part of a film series sponsored by TLA Video and Philebrity, Mayor Nutter will introduce a screening of his favorite movie.

His pick? Invincible, the little-movie-that-could about Vince Papale, who made it onto the Eagles in the 1970s through an open tryout.
