Jackie Robinson stars as himself in biographical movie, "The Jackie Robinson Story"

Jackie Robinson appears in a film biography, "The Jackie Robinson Story" in which he played himself. Actress Ruby Dee played Rachael "Rae" (Isum) Robinson.

Jackie Robinson, doing that rare thing of playing himself in the picture's leading role, displays a calm assurance and composure that might be envied by many a Hollywood star.”
