Grocery clerk Eddie Quaid, in danger of losing his father to alcoholism and his girl Julie through lack of career prospects, goes into boxing. His cop friend McBride finances him; ex-con Bernie Browne trains him. Three years later, he is a challenger for the championship, and Julie re-enters his life. Can she win him back from a predatory blonde? And why does the prospect of Eddie's winning worry Bernie more than his losing?Written by

This is a very overlooked but very good early movie by the great Tony Curtis. He plays a down and out young man whose dad is a horrible alcoholic, so he turns to boxing as a way to try to pick himself up. It is a pretty straight forward story where you'll see every turn coming but for its era it is a very decent film with some great acting by Curtis who of course went on to become a big star.
