Max Baer was a heavyweight boxing champion who won the championship by knocking out huge Primo Carnera, and a year later lost it to "Cinderella Man" Jimmy Braddock (but the movie called Cinderella Man grossly misrepresented Baer, both factually and personally). He appeared in a few movies in the 1930s and 1940s. Baer died in 1959 at the age of 50. His son was Max Baer Jr., who was born in 1937, and became famous as Jethro on TV's "The Beverly Hillbillies" and for producing "Macon County Line", a sleeper hit.
