Product Description

"There isn't any room for feelings in this game," racketeer and fight promoter Nick Donati snarls. Bet the house Nick's feelings of jealousy and rage knock him flat in this influential ring saga linking professional boxing to criminal gambling. Edward G. Robinson is Nick, and tightly coiled Humphrey Bogart is Turkey Morgan, rival promoters who, like fighters flinging kidney punches, end up swapping close-range bullets. Bette Davis plays the moll who has a soft spot for the the bellhop (Wayne Morris) Nick grooms for the heavyweight title. And prolific Michael Curtiz directs this first of his six collaborations with Bogart that would include the romantic masterwork CASABLANCA and the sly comedy WE'RE NO ANGELS.

although this film features boxing as its main plot, "kid galahad" will also appeal to fans of "the golden age of hollywood" or edward g. robinson, humphrey bogart, bette davis or director michael curtiz.
the story of an amiable and talented boxer who works his way through the ranks to greatness, may not be the most original but in the hands of "warner bros." it is a winner in all departments.
for my money, it is edward g. robinson and bette davis who steal the acting honours between them. robinson gives plenty of humour, passion, temperment and a bit of tragedy to the role of the boxer's promoter where as davis's character is slowly but surely tiring of her life as the girlfriend of someone who can only think of what goes on inside the ring and not about much else. humphrey bogart is once again cast as the sneering gangster(and he can sneer with the best of them) but he is still watchable. wayne morris, cast in the title role, is no great shakes as an actor but still has a likeable personality.
i consider the narrative, the pace and certainly the direction to be well above the usual standards and it all helps considerably in making this production so enjoyable.
no fan of films from this period should miss out on the opportunity to enjoy this masterpiece. they sure don't make them like this any more!

Warner Bros. Pictures presents "KID GALAHAD" (1937) (101 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Starring Edward G. Robinson, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Wayne Morris, Jane Bryan & Harry Carey

Directed by Michael Curtiz

Another little gem from the 1930s--a simple and predictable story combined with excellent dialog, acting and breezy direction. Edward G. Robinson is in top form here in a role that allows him to portray his less sinister side; the scene in which he visits his mother and talks to her at length in Italian are genuinely charming.

Bogey has a smaller but no less important role in his manipulative handling of the champion McGraw and his rivalry with Nick Donati (Robinson). And it's a pleasure to watch Bette Davis use her "Bette Davis Eyes" in scenes with Nick.

The talented trio of Robinson, Bogart and Davis, who could ask for anything more, from the stable of Warner Bros. Pictures.

Boxing fans and movie buffs, catch this one, not to be missed.

Promoter Nick Donati (Edward G. Robinson) is hosting a party for prizefight champion Chuck McGraw (William Haade), when the boxer harasses a bellhop, Ward Guisenberry (Wayne Morris), who decks the champ with one punch. That is when Donati's mistress, Fluff Phillips (Bette Davis) suggests that maybe the battling bellhop could be the next champ. She even gives Ward his new nickname, "Kid Galahad" (saw that one coming, right?). So Nick signs the kid and sends him out on the road with his trainer, Silver Jackson (Harry Carey) and Fluff, who falls in love with the Kid, who in turn has no clue as to what is going on. When Fluff rejects Donati's marriage proposal, he assumes the Kid and Fluff have been an item and he intends to get his revenge. Donati arranges a championship fight with McGraw, guaranteeing the champ's crooked manager, Turkey Morgan (Humphrey Bogart) that the Kid will lose and receive a savage beating in the process. Just to make things really complicated, the Kid trains at Donati's farm, where he falls for the promoter's kid sister, Marie (Jane Bryan). During the fight Donati gives the Kid bad instructions, but when Fluff and Marie convince him the Kid never did him any wrong. However, even telling the Kid to go on and win the fight cannot prevent "Kid Galahad" from having a tragic ending.
With a cast like Robinson, Davis and Bogart and director Michael Curtiz, it is easy to see why "Kid Galahad" was considered one of the best fight pictures of its day. The fight sequences are certainly above average and Harry Carey has always been one of my favorite character actors ever since I first saw "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" where he plays the Vice President. Morris has a promising debut in a leading role, but never really gets another film this good in his relatively long career. The screenplay by Seton I. Miller is based on the novel by Francis Wallace. Final Note: "Kid Galahad" was remade as an Elvis Presley musical in 1962 with the King playing the Kid.
