Personality Kid, The (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Warner drama about a boxer (Pat O'Brien) with a level head who soon starts to want the high life, which costs his his career but with some good luck he might get one more shot with a comeback. Even by 1934 standards this thing follows all the sports clichés right down the line. O'Brien is probably best known for his supporting roles next to Cagney. In those films he usually manages to be very good to excellent but in his solo roles it seems he's often giving a Cagney inspired performance, which is the case here. He's decent in the role but Glenda Farrell steals the show as his manager/wife.
