In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

At the North American Society for Sport History conference in Berkeley, California, in 2012, I went to a session on film and sport history. The three speakers were Susan Birrell, Russell Field, and Jaime Schultz, and their session was commented on by Malcolm MacLean. It was an informative, engaging, and somewhat contentious session that covered many critical issues: the medium of film as a form of historical representation, similarities and differences between filmic history and written history, assessments of filmic history and its relationship to the past, and the relationship between film, history, and “truth.” These authors have kindly reworked their presentations into formal papers for Malcolm MacLean’s reconsideration and commentary. In different ways, all of these papers address Marnie Hughes-Warrington’s suggestion “that films are not a form of history but are history.”*
