the problem is that whole premise around which this documentary is built is incorrect. There werent that many knockdowns as mythology has stated. They also have blood all over the place because in the old B/W photos the water stained canvas looks like blood stains (blood stained canvas in those old photos would have looked black). In addition to that I dont think they mention that Jeanette had the assistance of an oxygen tank in his corner (early but legal performance enhancer). That all being said it makes for a great story and its cool to see someone actually cared enough to make a documentary about Jeanette.
