    (February 11, 1909-November 21, 1959)
    Heavyweight Champion of the World (1934-1935)
    Won heavyweight title from Primo Carnera and lost it to Jim Braddock
    Acted in 'The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933),' 'Ladies' Day (1943)' and 'The Harder They Fall (1956)'
    Father of Max Baer, Jr.
    Inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame (1995)
    He was divorced.
    He was a notorious womanizer and partier.
    As with most of the male population of the '30s, he had an affair with Jean Harlow.
    He preferred chasing women to training, which may have cost him his heavyweight title.
    His powerful punches often beat his opponents to messy pulps.
    He accidentally killed Frankie Campbell with a blow to the head during one round (1930).
    After the death, he took up smoking to help deal with the guilt.
    Predictably, he played mainly tough guys after entering Hollywood.
    He never successfully defended the heavyweight championship.
    He went against the Jewish religion of naming his son after himself (Jews are not suppose to name children after the living).
    His punch was one of the strongest in boxing history.
    He scored over fifty knock-outs in his career.
    A Jew, he wore a Star of David when facing Hitler's pride, Max Schmeling.
    He was boxing's most colorful character before Muhammad Ali.
    He never forgave himself for killing Campbell, and even put the dead man's kids through college.
    He was unfairly depicted in the film 'Cinderella Man' as a boastful and brutal jerk.
    As he lay dying in a hotel room from a heart attack, he was asked if he needed the 'house doctor.' He jokingly responded: 'No, I need a people doctor.'
    He is the only Jewish Heavyweight Champion.
