This is the story of four San Francisco 49ers: Joe Perry, Hugh McElhenny, John Henry Johnson, and Y. A. Tittle. Though together for only three years—1954 through 1956—their stories made history, and each player went on to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tracing their heroics on the field as well as the struggles encountered in their personal lives, The Million Dollar Backfield offers a unique look at the world of football—and life in America—in the 1950s.
