REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 17-Jun-2006)

Finest boxing story ever portrayed on film. Flynn was perfect as James J Corbett since he was a former boxer himself and his personality lent well to the storyline. This is a movie you can watch over and over and always be entertained. Great cast of supporting actors in Jack Oakey, Alexis Smith, and Ward Bond. An excellent period piece, love story and loosely woven tale of a true story in American history.
