  • Description

    Titles read: "MAX BAER IN TRAINING".

    New Jersey, United States of America.

    Various shots of ex-Heavyweight Champion boxer Max Baer in training at a countryside residence for a boxing match against Tommy Farr. He saws down a tree with another man, shouting "Timber!" as it falls. We then see him going for a run with a trainer and using a punch bag. Commentator notes that Max has to shift some extra weight for his comeback so we see him lying on his front on a basketball, rolling his stomach over the ball. Max looks up and winks at us. After this session, he kneels up and slaps his stomach.

    Note: this version has American commentary. Duplicate of basketball rolling sequence only with English commentary is found in story MAX BAER IN TRAINING IN NEW JERSEY in regular 38/18 issue. See separate record.
