Summary
An unscrupulous boxer fights his way to the top, but eventually alienates all of the people who helped him on the way up. Midge, played by Kirk Douglas, is not the basic good guy corrupted by the sweet science and led astray by evil mangers and promoters; his arrogance and stubbornness make him at once a villain and a hero
