Billie Jean King, throughout her life, has done more to change the landscape of athletics. She may not have been the greatest athlete, yet she stands in same field with Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, and Muhammad Ali. And for a female athlete who has transcended the boundaries of their profession it is only fitting that people (even those - like myself - who have never watched her play) can remember her just by watching this DVD. It is a reminder of what children can do in their lives if they could just dream a dream that Billie Jean has lived, and they can accomplish a lot.
