Boxers and Beefcake

John Ericson had kept himself in good enough condition to pose naked, at age 47, for a Playgirl centerfold. Some years earlier he played a boxer in this G.E. Theater drama from 1957 and while he kept his trunks on he often appeared shirtless and sweaty and thus had ample opportunity to show off his easy-on-the-eyes physique. Ah, the 50s. Most of Ericson's ring opponents seem to be young, clean-cut white men. He even gets a chance to box a bare-chested Ronald Reagan who looks OK for a man in his mid-40s but who, perhaps, shouldn't have allowed himself to go nipple-to-nipple with the still-in-his-prime Ericson.

The story they're in is basically a three-character affair about a cocky young boxer, his older and wiser trainer, and his pretty girlfriend who's grown concerned about the way his life is heading. This is only a half-hour show so there's little time for subtlety or nuance and the ending seems a bit rushed -- and more than a bit implausible -- but seeing John Ericson shirtless and proud is an asset not to be dismissed.
