WILT CHAMBERLAIN: BORSCHT BELT BELLHOP

Large_wilt_chamberlain_borscht_belt_bellhop_2
Before his senior year of high school, Wilt Chamberlain took a summer job at Kutsher’s Country Club, a Jewish resort in the Catskills. By day, he was making $2 an hour. At night, he played on Kutsher’s basketball team, coached by its then-unknown athletic director, Red Auerbach. Mixing interviews with rarely seen archival video, this documentary captures a basketball great in a very different era, the Borscht Belt’s Dirty Dancing-styled heyday.
