Trivia

Sugar Ray Robinson and the character played by Rocky Graziano box in this episode, and Robinson knocks the Graziano character out. This is a case of art imitating life; in 1952 Robinson and Graziano fought for the world middleweight championship, and Robinson won by knockout. See more »

Sugar Ray Robinson and Rocky Graciano are hilarious
4 March 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The plot is that Judy's gentle boyfriend, Antione (Rocky Graciano) is a hairdresser and wants to be a fighter. To discourage him, she seeks help from Toody and Muldoon. They persuade Sugar Ray Robinson to pose as a 70 year old boxer, knocking out Antoine to convince him he has no future in boxing. This occurs, with the result that Antoine turns mean at the hairdressing business, as boxing was his outlet for his anger. To get him back to normal, Sugar Ray returns and persuades him to take up boxing again. The story ends with Antoine knocking out three opponents in the ring, and Judy cheering on from the sidelines.

The episode begins with some wonderful byplay concerning Kissel, and Toody losing his gun. It then moves fully into the boxing story, and all the actors involved, including the trainers and sparring partner are excellent in their minor roles. One thing that was noticeable was that Toody and Muldoon had less to do than normal, and the guests dominated the story. This led me to look at the two boxers, and the sad fact was, they were both broke at the time and had entered acting for money, Rocky Graciano was great as the effete hairdresser, with Sugar Ray mostly playing himself, though his acting as a 70-year-old man was well done The only thing that slightly jarred was the violence in a comedy, otherwise I would've given it a 9 out of 10. The gay mannerisms of Antoine the hairdresser were funny, and I didn't think they were overdone.
