If you like boxing movies, you're in for a treat, because this one has a very nice cast. However, it isn't the most exciting film, and if you don't like boxing movies, you might find yourself getting rather bored now and then. Ritzy McCarty (Pat O'Brien) is a boxer with some very fancy trademarks, like dancing around in the ring. He gathers quite a crowd, so a big shot promoter decides to take him on, along with his manager wife (Glenda Farrell). Unfortunately, the success goes to his head, and Ritzy takes up with a wealthy society dame (Claire Dodd) who is rather amused with his interest in her. Of course, his large appetite dooms him.

The most exciting cast member for me is Farrell, and she opens the film with many scenes, but as Ritzy takes more of an interest in Dodd, her appearances fade away. She makes a comeback at the end, but her part isn't quite the typical sassy girl. She has her moments, and the character is certainly strong-willed, but she doesn't have any super-snappy and memorable lines.
