I have a movie to recommend and i challenge you to rent it.
It is called Fist of the third Reich.
It is a movie about Max Schmeling and his rise in boxing as Hitler was coming to power era. The focus of this is on Max in the ring, not a war movie.
If you watch the trailer you would think it is. The movie was poorly marketed IMO.
Joe Louis only had three defeats in his career and one of them is to this man.
Interesting that years after boxing Max helped Louis out after he had spent all his money and was destitute and they became close friends.
When the two fought it was billed as Nazi vs. America along with the racial undertones.
I think the movie is done very well and holds your interest on a fighter that most people know little about.
