    I'm always suspicious of boxing films, such as this one, that do not feature a lot of boxing. It usually means that the screenwriter, in this case the often good Charles Schnee of "Bad And Beautiful" fame, wants to use the sweet science as a way to send a social message, in most cases an ant fight diatribe, but in this case a homily on race prejudice by the minority against the majority. The result is a rather slow, dull film that is long on talk, short on interesting or witty talk, and definitely short on action which is kind of a surprise since it is helmed by one of Hollywood's better action directors, John Sturges. As for the acting, it's scattershot. Powell is good, even though his character is a fifth wheel and seems to have wandered in from "Murder My Sweet", Montalban gives the film's best performance as a bitter, insecure Mexican fighter, Allyson is terminally adorable as per usual, and Barrymore, also per ad nauseum, is a kindly curmudgeon. Give it a C.

  • Wonderful movie!

    Oh, what a wonderful movie this is! Being a huge fan of Dick Powell, I have to see any movie that he appeared in. He played his part beautifully and was wonderful as always! Please make this title available on DVD!
