Speaking of Chess in the Movies...

Chess in the Movies
A scene from "Knights of the South Bronx."

On Tuesday December 6th at 8:00 p.m., Arts and Entertainment Television (A&E) will air the chess docudrama "Knights of the South Bronx" starring Ted Danson, which looks like a well-made and inspiring film in the line of "Searching for Bobby Fischer." It tells the true story David MacEnulty, an English teacher (why do they always teach English?) who finds a way to help his students believe in their academic abilities through chess. I will have to add it to my growing list of "Chess in the Movies." I've already recommended it to my students.
