This unedited behind-the-scenes and interview footage, filmed by Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy for “Entertainment Tonight,” is of the filming of 1991's "Necessary Roughness," near Ft. Worth. Ruddy interviews football legend Ben Davidson, who is playing one of the members of the rival all-star Texas State Penitentiary Convict football team, followed by boxing legend Evander Holyfield, who states that “football was my first love.” Ruddy also interviews NFL player “Too Tall” Jones and model Kathy Ireland, who plays the kicker for the Texas State Armadillos. Ireland states that she believes women should absolutely be able to play football because it should be based on talent instead of sex. Also included are scenes of the all-star footballers playing catch between takes.
