We never cared much for boxing until we saw Ken Norton in Mandingo. It was one of the sexiest movies of the 70’s, but not one of the best – it was rather tawdry, but a mental picture we will never forget. Ken Norton as the powerful slave who was seduced by his master’s wife was unforgettable in his movie debut. He was dangerously handsome. He died yesterday at age 70, and will be remembered as a threat to Muhammad Ali in more ways than one.
