Join host Joe Namath as America's creamiest-of-the-crop heroes are spotlit and celebrated for their achievements and contributions to their communities. From unsung underdogs striving for the big win, to individuals who've overcome extreme obstacles in order to achieve greatness, this series showcases winners from all walks of life: those who exemplify what it means to be a champion. We hear from American heroes like  Joe Namath, Caitlyn Jenner, Mike Tyson, Cesar Chavez, and Wilt Chamberlain. Freedom is the story of a teenager's soul-searching after becoming emancipated from her family and joining a traveling carnival.  Freedom  stars Mare Winningham and features six songs that Janis Ian wrote for her to perform in the movie.

Let's Go Summer!

Summer is here so TheArchive is ready to dive headfirst into our summer movie collection. Celebrating our eclectic mix of genres, narratives, and experiences we are getting you out of the heat so you can chill with some of our favorites. Since everyone is chatting about Mel Gibson and his controversial casting in the John Wick spinoff The Continental, we start with Gibson's first film here: Two years before his breakout role in Mad Ma x, Mel Gibson stars  in his very first film, a surfer flick called Summer City   alongside Phil Avalon.  Marcia Gay Harden stars in The Wine of Summer . When a great play inspires James to go on a journey of self-discovery, which leads him to Spain, he ends up getting tangled in a web of desire, love, and broken trust. Summer Dreams: The Story of the Beach Boys  stars Bruce Greenwood as Dennis Wilson.  This definitive tale of the legendary band is told from the brotherly relationship of the late Dennis Wilson and his genius but troubled brother, Bria

Juneteenth: Devotion to Freedom

Originally published June 19, 2020 and updated June 19th, 2023 Commemorating an American Hero. Frederick Douglass wrote a letter to Harriet Tubman and said the following: "The midnight sky and the silent stars have been the witnesses of your devotion to freedom and of your heroism…I know of no one who has willingly encountered more perils and hardships to serve our enslaved people than you have."   This Juneteenth we spotlight a story about an incredible American hero who changed the world.  TheArchive  proudly presents  A Woman Called Moses , a miniseries honoring the life of Harriett Tubman who summoned the strength and indomitable will to defy and overcome a tyrannous system. Debuting in 1978... A Woman Called Moses  was produced as a television miniseries and based on the life of Harriet Tubman, the escaped slave who organized the infamous Underground Railroad, ultimately leading scores from enslavement to freedom.


From Vegas to Lake Huron, and everywhere in between, it seems the UFO sighting is hotter than ever. Even former Air Force veteran and  military intelligence official David Grusch has been on a tear as of late claiming the U.S. government has an alien spacecraft they are currently working to "reverse engineer." And what's more, he claims that he is at  “great personal risk and obvious professional risk” speaking out about his purported knowledge. Well TheArchive thinks the risk is worth it - we certainly believe him - and if you need any further proof, look no further than our body of extraterrestrial sightings right here. We blast off with Close Encounters: Proof of Alien Contact . This documentary examines whether UFOs are real. It studies over 250 amateur video clips, evaluates several recent revelations about Roswell, and examines footage of the removal of an alien implant and hear from a panel of "experts" including: Richard Dreyfuss, David Duchovny, Steven

Pride Month on The Archive

Welcome to  TheArchive 's cinematic celebration of Pride Month. As we come together to honor and support the LGBTQ+ community, it's the perfect time to explore a diverse range of films that capture the essence of love, identity, and self-discovery. From heartfelt dramas to uplifting comedies, we've curated a list of movies that remind us of the power and beauty of diverse stories.  In  Alto , Francesca “Frankie” Del Vecchio (Diana DeGarmo) is adamant about many things in life. Headstrong and passionate, she loves her family, her band, and her fiancé; but disagrees with all of them about one thing: "Mob Hit" a TV show symbolizes the fetishizing of Mafia culture that to Frankie obscures all the more important aspects of the Italian American culture she longs to feed her soul.  But Frankie’s abhorrence of–and her sister Heather’s attraction to–Mob culture remain symbolic, that is until Frankie opens the trunk of a rental car and finds her world turned upside down.
