Trivia:
Michael Curtiz, Presley's favorite director, had previously directed the original Kid Galahad (1937).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]

One of my favorites!, 19 November 2004
Author: jonnyrancher (jonnyrancher@yahoo.com) from Las Vegas, NV

OK. So it's not "Gone with the Wind," but "Kid Galahad" is well written, fun, and lightly sprinkled with some very good songs (catch the twisting "I Got Lucky" and the front porch "This is Living" scenes.) "Kid Galahad" also boasts a strong supporting cast (look for a young Ed Asner in one his first screen roles;) Academy-Award winner Gig Young, Charles Bronson, and Lola Albright, in a surprisingly emotive role, add "punch" to what, on the surface, appears to be just another Presley vehicle. "Kid Galahad" also had the blessing of being completed before they counted the receipts of "Blue Hawaii." When the studio saw how much money they made off of "Blue Hawaii," the dye was cast; Elvis would be stuck doing "14 song travelogues" for another 7 years. "Kid Galahad" catches Elvis in good humor, shape, and voice; he was having fun...You will too.
