The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Fight 0000
Plot: The first known feature film! A very unusual filmed record of the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight originally ran over 90 minutes in length.
Story: This legendary fight was filmed on March 17, 1897, using 63mm film that produced an aspect ratio of about 1.75:1. Using three adjacent cameras, Enoch Rector recorded the entire fight, simultaneously creating the world's first known feature film, as the resulting footage lasted over 90 minutes in length. About a quarter of the film survives today.
Did you know: In the early 1980s, world class sports athlete and fight film collector, Jim Jacobs acquired surviving original nitrate print elements of this 63mm film. He took these elements to ASC cinematographer and film restoration specialist, Karl Malkames who designed and built a printer to copy the film to standard 35mm and 16mm formats. It's because of Jacobs and Malkames that these fragments of the film are viewable today.
