A Boxing Turkey
29 November 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Two brothers use their boxing skills to help each other.

I got this turkey in the 3-movie package of Forgotten Noir. Good thing the other two aren't so bad. Reviewer bkoganbing is spot on. The premise is ludicrous, at best. Having tough guy King Cobra (Barry) sashay from the ring to the concert stage requires more than a little stretch.

No need to belabor the cheap sets, the screwball storyline, or the bad photography. Too bad the results don't rise to a campy level. I'm just sorry that two good performers like Barry and Brown are wasted in this misfire. One thing for sure—despite the bad script, they certainly look like brothers.

(In passing— Speaking of brothers, ex- pug Tony Canzoneri {Swinger Martin} could pass for Edward G. Robinson's thuggish brother.)
