For the fight in the film, the Director Todd Bellanca brought in five cameras to shoot an actual World Boxing Council sanctioned boxing match between Casey T. Evans (young Jack 'The Ripper' Stemmons) and Cliff Smith (Marcel 'The Bull' Eldridge). The actual Cruiserweight fight (185 lbs.), which took place at The Heart of St. Charles Banquet Center in St. Louis, MO, ended in a four round decision win for Evans. See more »
This movie was better than I expected it to be. I enjoyed the boxing scenes the most, although the cinematography throughout was uniquely stylized.
My next-door-neighbor Vance Thompson played the boxing referee in this film. He is an actual retired boxing referee, as well as a swing-dance champion, wood sculptor, ex-con and senior Olympian. He also appeared on the cover of the "Riverfront Times" several years ago under the headline "The Dresser". If you would like to cast a true St Louis character (and style icon) in your next film, please contact Vance at 314-968-8614.
