In This Corner – 1948 This one has Scott Brady in his first lead as a just out of the Navy scrapper who wants to become a pro boxer. He tells his girl, Anabell Shaw, that he is off to join an old Navy vet who manages a boxing club. Brady tells her that once he makes his fame and fortune they can get married etc. Brady finds the old vet has not managed a fighter in years and the club is just an old rooming house with himself as the only boxer. Brady sticks it out and is soon hired as a sparring partner at a club owned by a mobbed up manager, James Millican. Brady is soon signed to a contract by Millican after he decks a ranked fighter during a sparring bout. Brady KO's his first opponent and is soon moving up with 9 straight wins. His girl Shaw joins him and life looks good. That is till Millican informs him he is to take a dive in the next weekend's fight. Millican's mob is placing a large wager at long odds on Brady's opponent and his assistance is required. Brady is more than a little annoyed at this idea and tells Millican to get stuffed. Brady intends to win and to hell with the mob! Of course the mob has a back-up plan. They stick a punch-drunk boxer one step away from the morgue in with Brady to spar with. The boxer, Johnny Indrisano, goes down in a heap at the first punch and is hauled off to the hospital. Night of the fight and Brady is just getting ready to enter the ring when a telegram is delivered. It states that Indrisano has died from Brady's punch to the head. Needless to say this news throws Brady's game off and he is savagely thrashed, just like the mob wanted. He asks for a re-match in 3 weeks and gets it. He trains hard but the death of Indrisano eats at him. The day of the fight Brady sends Shaw off to see about helping out the dead boxer's family. Imagine the surprise when Shaw finds no record of Indrisano's death. She digs deeper and discovers the whole thing was a mob ploy to upset Brady. She hunts down the quite alive Indrisano who is being stashed at Millican's country house. Of course while all this is going Brady is again being pummeled in the ring. Shaw, the police and the just rescued Indrisano get to the arena just in time for Brady to rebound for a KO. Millican is grabbed up by the cops and film is wrapped in just under an hour.

This was Brady's second film and his first starring role. The director was Charles F. Riesner, whose claim to fame was Buster Keaton's STEAMBOAT BILL JR and the Marx brother's, THE BIG STORE. The D of P was Guy Roe who worked on RAILROADED, BEHIND LOCKED DOORS, TRAPPED and ARMORED CAR ROBBERY. The story is by Fred Niblo Jr who worked on CONVICTED, THE INCIDENT, THE BODYGUARD and WAGONS ROLL AT THE NIGHT. The film was edited by Alfred DeGaetano. DeGaetano's films include, TRAPPED, HE WALKED BY NIGHT, RAW DEAL and REPEAT PERFORMANCE.

Ex-pug Johnny Indrisano sported a 64-9-4 record as a pro and beat several world champs during his career including Joe Dundee and Nick Testo. He then became a character actor and a trainer for boxing films. He has bit parts in 99 RIVER STREET, JOHNNY ANGEL, THE BODYGUARD, KNOCK ON ANY DOOR, TENSION, BORDERLINE, FORCE OF EVIL, THE SET-UP and about a dozen more noirs and numerous TV shows.
