Format: DVD
Eddie Willis was once a top sports writer, but now he is down on his luck and searching for work. He gets a proposition from dodgy promoter Nick Benko, he is to write up sensationalist press for Benko's new discovery, the gigantic Toro Moreno. Trouble is is that Moreno is a poor boxer, powder puff punches and a glass jaw. But each fight is fixed by Benko and along with Eddie's press writings, this propels Moreno to being a household name, thus a crack at the heavyweight title is in the offering. However, Eddie starts to feel conflicted the more the story unfolds and just around the corner is a tragedy that will shape the destinies of everyone who is involved.

This was sadly to be the last film from the great Humphrey Bogart. He would pass away the following year, but thankfully this Mark Robson directed piece proves to be a fitting swansong. He puts depth to his portrayal of Willis and his face off scenes with Rod Steiger's Benko are a real acting joy to observe. The film itself {great scripting from Phillip Yordan} is a scathing and critical look at the boxing circuit, corruption, greed and a scant care for human life come bubbling to the surface, with Burnett Guffey's stark black & white photography adding grime to the nasty underbelly. Real life {and one time heavyweight champion of the world} boxer Primo Carnera sued {and lost} Columbia because The Harder They Fall's story was close enough to his own life story, that in itself makes this film's core story all the more interesting. 8/10

This 1956 picture was screen legend Humprhey Bogart's last. Playing a sports journalist Bogart watches the rise and fall of a boxfigther used by unscrepoulous managers and promoters.
Humphrey Bogart plays a great caracther in this picture, very much in the mold of his famous screen persona, but this time with a gentelness that was not always so obvious in other pictures.
Filmed in widescreen with b/w photography, the dvd presents a good copy of the film with lots of subtitles.

I am a fan of film noir. They all seem to have been made in the late forties and early fifties.This is a late one at 1956.

I remember watching these films when I was young and apart from the glossy version of Hollywood this seemed to me a truer depiction of what America was really like in the 1950s. Written by the same writer who did On the Waterfront. It covers the same sort of area, corruption.

We never had hard fhitting films about corruption in Britain so we had to view the US version.

The idea of promoting a poor amateur fighter to become the heavy weight champion of the world by fixing fights is on the first loook a little far fetched but I was reading an article about people who have either won or were runners up in recent reality telvision shows such as X factor. They are taken on by the pormoters get top billing maybe a number one record then are dropped.

It is the same sort of idea. the promotors can almost make anything happen and the public believe anything.

Rod Steiger is great as the crooked promoter and Humphhrey Bogart is remarkable as the down at heel writer who provides all the words and people believe it.

Poor old Toro Moreno from Argentina he has no idea what is going on but Bogart has a conscience in the end.

I am sure it is going on somewhere as we speak. A great film and very realistic.I am not a sports fan but this is one of the best sports films I have ever seen.

Great film unmissable

A film I've seen before, but wanted to see again. Two superb actors, Bogart and Steiger make it a classic, revealing professional boxing as a dirty game.

About corruption in boxing and how corruption in journalism helps it along. Weary performance from HB, not surprising really since he died soon after this was made, of cancer. It's a dreary story with a predictable outcome. If you must have every flick HB made then you'll need this one to compete things but for the rest of us, it's not one of his better films. Giving it only two stars seemed pretty mean, hence the third added for the sake of conscience.

Primo Carnera, a giant heavyweight with nothing but his size to commend him, was naturally upset to discover that a film, loosely based on his career, had been presented to the general public. Mike Lane, a giant strongman, plays the part of the parvenu Toro Moreno 'The Wild Bull of the Andes, who is mercilessly exploited by Rod Steiger. The boxing impressario is fully aware that his protege is totally useless, a massive lump of flesh with a glass jaw. Toro is both physically and mentally thick and doesn't realise that he is being 'taken for a ride'. Humphrey Bogart, the boxing journalist, watches the situation develop, the glitz, the gaudy advertising, and eventually is won over to sympathise with the victim of such a cynical system. Mike Lane is superb as the pitiful heavyweight. The scene where Bogart hands the battered boxer a substantial paypacket instead of the miserable $48.50 which the loser is left with after the leeches have taken their cut, is wonderful. Forget Sylvester Stallone. Mike Lane may be a loser in the ring, but he wins our sympathy with this performance.
