Storyline

A little B-picture that M-G-M tossed out, barely promoted and forgot about but one that is better than some of the A-dross from Leo in the same era. Shelley Winters, after an absence of 15 months from the screen, is on the down-side of her sexpot days and the upside of her character days and is excellent as the devoted wife trying to keep her larcency-inclined husband on the up-and-up and has more losses than wins in that department; Kennan Wynn is even better as her fight-manager husband and gives a controlled performance as a blustery character, as opposed to the uncontrolled, mail-it-in, over-the-top blustery characters he later played in many westerns; and Earl Holliman as Wynn's harmonica-playing, punch-drunk handyman is dead on the mark. Story, which strays a bit toward the melodramatic in places, concerns a deacon's son,Daniel Norson(Dewey Martin), who thinks he has killed a man in a fight over a girl and goes on the lam. He is picked up by fight manager Willy Wurble (Keenan ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Here we go off to the boxing ring once again. This movie was a great boxing movie. I just saw last year for the first time and it was delightful. There is a new boxer in town so you better watch your step before he wants to get you into the boxing ring to win some money so he can send it back home. The guy (Boxer) is disparately seeking money and he will do whatever it takes to get it! I enjoy watching this movie over and over again.
