On This Day in 2005…

The Oscar nominated Cinderella Man was released, Directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard, and starring Oscar winners Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger, the movie tells the story of a once top-ranked boxer named James ‘Jim’ Braddock, who – along with his family – suffer the tragedies of the Great Depression of the 1930′s. Braddock is given an incredible second chance few could ever imagine: a title match against the infamous Max Baer. It’s the kind of story Hollywood used to make a lot of. It’s your typical David vs. Goliath tale. The only thing is: this story is for real!
