Film Screening: Alfred the Great

Ninth century English nobleman Alfred (David Hemmings) puts his plans to become a priest on hold, because his country has been invaded by Vikings. An innovative tactician, he earns the nickname “Alfred the Great” for his show of bravery on the battlefield — his renown also wins him a marriage to Princess Aelhswith (Prunella Ransome). When the Vikings mount a second invasion, however, Alfred must once again make a decision between his religious yearnings and his loyalty to his people.

Author talk with Jeffrey Sussman, author of “Max Baer and Barney Ross, Jewish Heroes of Boxing”

Sat
12/3
1-3 PM

In the 1920s and 30s, anti-Semitism was rife in the United States and Europe. Jews needed symbols of strength and demonstrations of courage against their enemies, and they found both in two champions of boxing: Max Baer and Barney Ross. Baer was the only Jewish heavyweight champion in the twentieth century, while Ross was considered one of the greatest welterweight and lightweight champions of the era. Although their careers never crossed paths, their boxing triumphs played a common role in lifting the spirits of persecuted Jews.

Jeffrey Sussman is the author of ten non-fiction books, as well as numerous articles and short stories about boxing. He is a regular writer for the premier boxing website www.boxing.com. Sussman is the president of a public relations and marketing firm based in New York City (www.powerpublicity.com).
