The African-American fighter named "Johnson" who injures Dempsey was in real life John Lester Johnson, who would later go on to do bit part acting roles, most notably "Bumbo" ("Uncle George") in the "Our Gang" short "The Kid from Borneo." See more »
I found this movie in one of those clearance racks and the price was right so I took a chance. It was a great find. I'm a huge boxing fan and like to find out information about old time boxers. I've read a lot of books and magazine articles about Dempsey and this was true to the point. The action scenes seemed real to the point the Tunney fight looked like they were really hitting each other. I would not only recommend this movie to anyone who likes boxing but to anyone looking for a good story. The plot was well developed and the acting was strong. Treat Williams did an excellent job as the lead. I gave this an 8 out of 10.
