Storyline

An honest boxer refuses to throw a fight for a gambler. They get into a fight and the boxer knocks the gambler out. Thinking he's killed him and believing that the police are after him, the horrified boxer runs off and takes to the road, promising never to box again. However, one day he comes upon a small but scrappy young kid who has the potential to be a champion. The former boxer takes the kid under his wing and trains him, but the kid's ensuing success starts to go to his head. Pretty soon he finds himself mixed up with gamblers, too.

Lighten up a little
16 December 2007 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The previous review tells us that this film defies the laws of logic. If you're looking for logic, go read Aristotle. This is a 1930s B-movie. Not a good place to look for logical exposition. Take it on it's own terms: It's a very enjoyable period piece that put most of its humble budget on-screen. Serial fans will treasure it for the opportunity to see three serial regulars: Kane Richmond, Frankie Darro and Fred "Snowflake" Toones. In fact, the latter even sings here! Given his high-pitched whiney way of vocalizing, the baritone that comes from his lips in song is a bit of a stunner. Darro is Darro, but Kane Richmond suggests that he can act a little - something that wasn't all that apparent from his rather wooden serial work. The female lead, whose name escapes me, went on to a mini-career as a choreographer as well as appearing in about a dozen films. Fans of the genre, and you know who you are, will find plenty to enjoy here. Logic be damned.
