James Cagney (in his final role) plays a wheelchair-bound former boxing champion whose long estraged granddaughter, an aspiring writer, pops back in his life first searching for money to help her ne'er-do-well boyfriend get off the hook with mafia types for various loans, and later she redevelops a familial bond with the old man.

Due to the aftereffects of a stroke, James Cagney was unable to properly articulate his dialog during shooting. In the finished film, his voice is actually dubbed by impressionist Rich Little. See more »
We want a copy of this movie - where do we buy one ?
This was a warm movie about real life. Cagney, Carney and Barkin did an outstanding job of portraying the great generation gap and how it CAN come together. Those who did not like this movie probably like a lot of violence and sex in movies.Those people are typical of this day and age...what a shame.
How do we buy a copy of this movie ? We have looked everywhere and it is not available - WHY ?????????
