Pat O'Malley (June Allyson) loves Johnny Monterex (Ricardo Montalban), a temperamental boxer with a deteriorating body. His fame has gone to his head and he attempts to change managers despite his weak condition. Pat acts as a mediator between Johnny's impulses and his best interests. She relies on the advice of Rick Garvey (Dick Powell), an older man who is interested in more than just friendship from Pat. Lionel Barrymore appears as Pat's father and Marilyn Monroe makes an early minor appearance.

Right Cross is an exceptional film because of the cast, but the story makes it strictly a b-film. It is no wonder it is so difficult to find. However, for die-hard Monroe fans and fans of the Allyson-Powell coupling, this is a must-see. Catch it sporadically on TCM.
