Classic B movie
26 March 2011 | by (california) – See all my reviews

A young Rita Moreno playing the sweet girl next door,Jack Elam in a tweed sport coat and floppy hat as a sleazy boxing promoter...Wow,I can't ask for much more.Movie was made when I was a youngster,watching it now it looks so nostalgic almost like being in a dream for me.Many scenes look to be shot on location and remind me of my own slum.Shiny old cars,carhops,old houses,etc are just icing on the cake.The story?Young Chicano trying to bust out of poverty by being a boxer also facing discrimination which was more blatant back then.All the cast gives realistic presentations...Some things don't change with time,like an angry young man being calmed down by the soft words of his girl(Rita)...Although crazy about boxing I don't like boxing movies which this is,part of the reason I didn't give it a 10.
