When a bellhop knocks out fighter Chuck McGraw, promoter Nick Donati realizes he's a potential champ. "Kid Galahad" justifies Nick's confidence, but Nick's mistress Fluff falls for him; in turn, the Kid falls for Nick's young sister. Now overprotective brother Nick turns against his new fighter, leading to a near- disastrous title fight and a murderous confrontation. Written by

Nick, you don't notice a lot of things. You're so wrapped up in the game that, well, you forget people have... have feelings and are human.
Nick 'Nicky' Donati
Well, there isn't any room for feelings in this game. A fighter's a machine, not a human being.
