Hardcourt greats Robert 'The Big J' Jaworski of Meralco and Freddie 'Fastbreak Freddie' Webb of YCO (MICAA days) starred in the movie titled Fastbreak (1971).

Prior to this movie, both also starred in another movie, Dimasupil Brothers, but together with another basketball star, Alberto 'Big Boy' Reynoso. Webb was introduced in this picture.
