Wandering around America, young Nick Adams encounters a washed-up punch-drunk boxer known as "The Battler".
Did You Know?
Paul Newman was originally scheduled to play Nick Adams in this TV play, opposite James Dean as "The Battler". Dean's death in a car crash on September 30, 1955, led to a hasty re-arranging of the casting. The play went out live some 19 days later, giving Newman some of the best notices of his career to that time. See more
