TOP 500 REVIEWERon 3 August 2017
Columbia Classics/Sony are releasing/have released some wonderful films on DVD and packed them with extras including optional English subtitles. This is one of them! For it's day I would say it is pretty violent. The fight scenes are tough, and, forgive me, no punches are pulled. I don't think I have seen Bogart give quite such a powerful performence as he does here as washed up sportswriter Eddie Willis. He is matched in the acting stakes by a relatively restrained Rod Steiger as corrupt promoter Benko. The whole cast is good, and if, for the sake of one grumble...I wish there was a good cast list at the end...so many familiar faces! Mike Lane does well as Toro (I remember him in "Hell Canyon Outlaws/Tall Trouble"), and Jan Sterling gives her usual strong performence as Eddie's wife. Look out for Max Baer, he may not be the world's best actor, but you "wouldn't want to know him when he was angry" (where does that phrase come from??). A truly classic film and a must for film lovers everywhere, but be aware, it's a tough film! Excellent 16.9 ratio (fills my whole screen), clear B/w picture and good sound, plus the aforementioned optional subtitles.

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.
