With documentaries, subject matter is often half the battle.

Jackson (1948) reminisce, along with Kim Cattrall (1956) and Billy Joel (1949), what one says has little relation to the next.

And if anyone can translate what the hell Deepak Chopra (1947) is talking about, by all means, do.

“Forgotten Four” doesn’t suffer for a lack of focus, but it’s fuzzy nevertheless.

Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, the one-hour project rather dutifully documents how Kenny Washington and Woody Strode (who played together at UCLA), Marion Motley and Bill Willis broke pro football’s color barrier in the mid-1940s – actually before Robinson did the same in baseball – relying heavily on anecdotes related by their children about their fathers’ experiences.

Presented under the “American Masters” banner, “Boomer List” starts with a terrific idea: Interviewing celebrities or simply accomplished people each representing a different year of those born from 1946 to 1964 – the designated parameters for boomerhood – reflecting the group’s influence and formative experiences.

What’s missing in photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ film (which will be accompanied by a book of portraits) is any sort of cohesion or focus.

Instead of zeroing in on signature events or ideas shared by the generation as a whole, the film is indeed a series of snapshots – a disjointed collection of memories, many of them seemingly peripheral to the defining attributes of a cohort that is redefining our conception of aging by heading into their retirement years kicking and screaming.

So while it might be interesting at first to hear Samuel L.

While having the kids serve as conduits theoretically provides a closer connection to the men, the second-hand nature of their accounts has the feel of stories passed down through the family, which aren’t always quite as reliable as the information from surviving observers and historians.

Mostly, as condensed by director Johnson Mc Kelvy and producer Ross Greenburg into less than an hour, it’s such a stiff, by-the-numbers approach that “Forgotten Four” provides little insight, feeling like the Hallmark Cards version of an HBO or ESPN “30 for 30” documentary.

(Notably, Greenburg — the former head of HBO Sports — also produced “Against the Tide,” a significantly better project, about how USC’s victory over Alabama in 1970, led by running back Sam Cunningham, hastened the integration of college football in the South.) So while Epix deserves credit for bringing the subject into the light – especially at a time when pro football could use some good, or at least uplifting, press – as documentaries go, “Forgotten Four” merely demonstrates the difference between suiting up and actually being worthy of the big leagues.
