HBO Special Highlights Top Sports Images

This 57 minute documentary made it's debut on HBO on Monday night, Jan. 21.

Explore the enduring and remarkable influence of still photos on sports history in this compelling documentary. Focusing on some of the unforgettable images from landmark sports events, the film presents the stories surrounding the photos as well as various interpretations of their significance.

Among the classic moments--all culled from a time known as "the Golden Age" of photography--are Babe Ruth's last Yankee Stadium appearance with never-before-seen color shots, Ben Hogan's picture-perfect swing at the 1950 U.S. Open, Cassius Clay standing defiantly over Sonny Liston in 1965 and the great shot of bloodied Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle. Interviews include Frank Gifford, Bob Beamon, Y.A. Tittle, Chuck Bednarik and Mary Decker; journalists Dan Jenkins, Daniel Okrent, Robert Creamer and Beano Cook; and photographers Walter Iooss, Neil Leifer and Gordon Parks. Narrated by Liev Schreiber.

If you missed the broadcast last night on HBO you can catch it at one of the following times:

Wednesday, January 23rd at 4:00 pm
Friday, January 25th at 8:15 am and 8:000 pm
Tuesday, January 29th at 3:00 pm
Sunday, February 3rd at 10:30 am and noon.

Check Those Clamps!

Got this note from Jim Evans the Chief Photographer Morning Sentinel & Kennebec Journal:

While hanging a light last night, the attached Super Clamp busted, and like a lot of us, I thought that would never happen. Luckily nothing bad happened and I always safety cable, but I think reminding all photographers to safety cable when hanging lights is a good idea. Our access to hanging lights will all be effected, if a few photographers are thoughtless in safety considerations. Please pass this along if you think it is worth repeating.
