Tonight on Icons @ 8, it's a double header of sorts, as we bring you a pair of sports themed movies with a starting lineup of Hollywood legends. First up is Bang the Drum Slowly (1973) starring Robert De Niro as a catcher battling a terminal illness. Michael Moriarty plays the wise to the world pitcher who helps him along the way. Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) is one of the great boxing movies, packing the punch of such stars as Anthony Quinn, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney and Julie Harris. Even Cassius Clay makes an appearance. Tune in tonight starting at 8ET/5PT, on Movies!
