"CINDERELLA MAN is pure fiction but as boxing films go, decent entertainment. In particular, I was really irritated at how inaccurate they made the '35 Baer title fight. In reality, this was no slugfest. Max never looked like a crazed beast during it. Jimmy spent much of the fight circling to his right. Mostly the two boxers clinched and threw ineffective inside uppercuts.
There were no two low blows, no face slap and no moment near the end of Round 15 when Braddock was staggered wth Max closing in for a headshot kill. In reality, Baer lost his zest for headhunting after he killed a man in the ring. Worst of all was the elimination of Baer's Star of David from his trunks. Max was proud of his Jewish heritage and this symbol should've been retained. Political correctness is nonsense, especially when supposedly depicting actual events.
