FILM: Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes                                           January 24, 2pm
The 1973 tennis match between women's World #1 Billie Jean King and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality. And Riggs wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife.
