Tennis fan Kenneth Walsh turns in a much more nuanced review of Battle of the Sexes, the Billie Jean King/Bobby Riggs film I raved about this week. (He liked it a lot, too.)
Walsh examines the film's choice to leave out the part of King's affair with Marilyn Barnett where Barnett became a paraplegic while living in Mr. and Mrs. King's home and sued Billie Jean for palimony, effectively outing her in '81. (She would not acknowledge she is a lesbian until 1998.)
