RE: "Race." Jessie Owens and the 1936 Nazi Olympics.

Yes, it's an entertaining film which also deals well with the obvious race issues in a believable way. I tend to always wonder if these issues are exaggerated or put too far into the forefront so as to lose their impact and weaken the rest of the story. This film walks that line quite well.

Is this a typo? I believe it was more like 1940 or 1950.
