Michael Picard was 16 when this film was made and he skipped school to watch it being filmed near his High School in Kitchener Ontario. Michael ended up with being cast as an extra in the film for the fight scenes. This was Michael's first experience with acting in a movie. He also performed magic for a private performance for Tony Curtis, who loves magic. See more »
Title Shot is extremely bad. It looks cheap and amateurish and has a confusing script, which seems just about impossible for a boxing movie, since the sport itself is so primitive and straightforward. Even worse, there are even a couple of familiar faces in it, which indicates that it isn't just a quick and crap drive-in kind of flick, but a major production that went sadly awry. The plot involves corruption at a heavyweight bout in Canada, but the fight takes place in a near deserted and rather cold looking hall, not entirely dissimilar to a church hall. There's also something about fixed betting, and one character who believes that by getting a computer to figure out all sorts of statistics, it is possible to predict the outcome of sporting contests. I loathed this movie. It was a real waste of time and I'd like to save anyone else the time of having to sit through it and tolerate it's nonsensnsical storyline and dismal performances.
