Arthur Mann collected signatures from Jackie Robinson and other cast members on the cover of the script on which he had sketched profiles of Branch Rickey and Clyde Sukeforth. Mann was an author and journalist who served as Branch Rickey's assistant while Rickey was General Manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Mann, along with Lawrence Taylor, wrote the script for the 1950 feature film starring Jackie Robinson playing himself in the title role.
