Trivia:
When Max Lieberman (Ned Glass) is sitting with Father Higgins (Liam Redmond) watching a sparring session, Lieberman rattles off the names of nine old-time fighters. Each and every name mentioned was a real boxer from the professional prize ring: "KO" Phil Kaplan, Augie Ratner, Battling Levinsky, Jack Bernstein, Louis "Kid" Kaplan, Ruby Goldstein, "Corporal" Izzy Schwartz, Abe Atell, and Harlem Tommy Murphy.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: Kid Galahad trains for the climactic big fight during the middle of summer, Independence Day to Labor Day, yet when you see all the orange and yellow leaves on the trees and on the ground it is obvious that these scenes were filmed in autumn.See more »
Quotes:
Otto Danzig:Here's $500 to help you get lost. They'll be somebody else in Galahad's corner. Someone who'll know what to do. Someone who'll make sure that he bleeds. That'll open up the cuts instead of closing them. Any bright ideas?
Lew Nyack:Yeah, I got a bright idea. It's what you can do with this $500.
[Lew throws the $500 cash back at Otto]

All American boy becomes boxing champion., 21 October 1999
Author: Michael O'Keefe from Muskogee OK

Fresh from the military, Walter Gulick (Elvis) takes a job at a boxing training camp. Gig Young is the greedy gambler that owns the camp. The vivacious Joan Blackman plays his sister, Rose. Walter goes from being a punching bag to becoming the champ. Charles Bronson plays a stoic, but good hearted trainer. Ed Asner would make one of his first movie appearances. One of my all time favorite Elvis movie scenes is when Walter and Rose do a slow version of the twist as Walter sings "I Got Lucky". Elvis did his own boxing scenes. No way can this version of "Kid Galahad" be compared to Humphrey Bogart's classic.
