    So last night I’m revisiting 3-D Rarities, and I decide to pay special attention to Rocky Marciano vs. Jersey Joe Walcott. Having read a little bit online concerning the bout, I realize there was controversy at the time with regards to the outcome. But last night I notice something I never caught before. Some of you may have caught it too, or perhaps take a different view of the matter from the one I’m about to express.

    During the count, by my reckoning, referee Frank Sikora skips the number three! If you read his lips (and really focus your ears), you may agree he says, “One… two… four… five… etc.” Narrator Jimmy Powers makes a point of taking up from the number four when he parrots the referee in his narration.

    “Some say there was a quick count,” says Powers. “We’ve shown you the count three times and recorded the actual voice of the knockdown timekeeper. What do you think now?”

    Mr. Powers, I don’t know what to think! Am I going crazy—er, crazier? What do you think?

    Answered my own question, and while I should probably feel a bit silly, I don't. Watching the short again, I realize there's a ringside time keeper calling the count, separate from the referee. The referee gets a late start on his count, and corrects himself on the count of four to match the ringside time keeper.

    No doubt my question could have been answered in advance if I knew anything at all about boxing. :)

    As someone who doesn't know a thing about boxing either, I thought your question was perfectly reasonable! :)

    Thanks for pointing this out, Mike. I've wondered about that count as well!

    Revisited this thread in anticipation of Volume 2 coming out this year. Volume 1 is such a great disc and I'm looking forward to everyone who wrote here's responses to V2
