This is the documentary on James J. Corbett for which I was interviewed.

Anyone planning to attend this film festival? I recently relocated to NY and might make the trek just to see the Corbett film.

What's so gentlemanly about a bitter racist?

Dunno, but people seem to like Muhammad Ali regardless.

Good point.

I generally adjust my sensitivities for the time but Corbett seemed like a real prick... not only to his black contemporaries but to Fitz and others. I dunno, put a top hat on him and I guess that makes him a gentleman.

Seen the Irish premier in Galway some time back, pretty interesting and accurate.

[quote=Seamus;15817150]What's so gentlemanly about a bitter racist?[/quote/]The term "racist" continues to be an overworked term. Consider the era. There are black and white 'racist' fighters in 2013. Quarry once said that he had everything working against him because all the black fighters dialed it up a notch because they didn't want to lose to a white boy and many, at that time, called him a racist which he obviously wasn't. He was right. Gentleman Jim, Dempsey, et al, in 2000 wouldn't have batted an eye facing anyone.
