Some men are seen shirtless, mostly in the boxing scenes.

Characters undress when going to bed, but nothing inappropriate.

Spitting on things is a recurring thing in this movie.

A horse trips over, but turns out to be okay.

Champ hits his son in the face through bars. He gets mad at himself afterward, and begins punching a wall continuously, and we see his fist bleed.

Surprisingly, the only boxing scene is at the end. There is some blood.

Champ dies in the boxing match. He also suffers a heart attack.

None. Only euphemisms ("Oh, gee whiz!", etc.)

A boy secretly steals some cigars to give to his father.

Smoking is a common thing in this movie, along with drinking.

Champ wins the fight but also collapses, eventually dying. His son repeatedly cries and sobs, "I want the champ!" This scene, although not as sad as the 1979 remake, may upset some viewers.
