When Billie Beat Bobby
Available on FilmRise, Prime Video, iTunes, Amazon Freevee
Academy Award®-winner Holly Hunter (Best Actress, THE PIANO, 1993) stars as tennis legend Billie Jean King in this highly entertaining flashback to 1973's historic "Battle of the Sexes." When aging, chauvinistic tennis pro Bobby Riggs (RON SILVER, ALI, REVERSAL OF FORTUNE) begins to challenge the world's top ladies players, King confidently rises to the test - not for herself, but to defend the honor of women everywhere. Months of hype then culminate in an epic match at Houston's Astrodome that transcends sport and captivates a massive national audience! With a great cast portraying memorable, larger-than-life personalities, this outstanding feature serves up something for everyone!
