"Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story"

Griffith, a promising young boxer, set off a huge controversy in 1962 when he pummeled a dazed opponent, Benny Paret, at the end of a championship bout on live TV. Paret, who had taunted Griffith at the weigh-in, died 10 days later. A campaign to ban boxing failed, but the sport was banished from TV for a decade. This movie debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and is being shown tonight without interruptions for commercials.
