Edward G. Robinson
This is an average sports movie based on the near-fatal car accident and painful but successful recovery of golfer Ben Hogan. One problem is that Glenn Ford, while appropriately stoic, does not radiate the natural charisma of Hogan, substituting instead his own patented brand of grim determination. But, that difference is what made Hogan a breed apart. Dennis O'Keefe gives the most blandly generic performance of a rival as amalgam "Chuck Williams" as you could ever hope to see. Still, if you love golf, this movie is worth watching.
