I about was about 14 yrs old when I saw this movie for the first time. not old enough to be a real critic I suppose. It was however a fascinating story about the "Boston Strong Boy" John L. Sullivan who was the last of the bare knuckle fighters to win the heavy weight title in the United States to my knowledge. This movie was not just a fight movie but also an early depiction of the struggles of a man with pride and love and alcohol. Greg McClure was perfectly cast for this role as he had all the physical attributes to make the part he played believable It seems to my memory that every actor and actress fit exactly into the roll they played. So much of this movie remains so vivid in my mind that I cannot but think that this movie should be hailed as an American Classic. If the film is somewhere intact it should be revived from it's hiding place and reprinted so this generation of movie goers have an opportunity to view it. If you have any information that would make it possible for myself and others to see this great movie once again please let me know. My e-mail address is, email@example.com My sincere thanks for any help you can be.
