Michael Gordon never intended to be a boxer. But after he decks a burly brawler at a nightclub, a ring promoter encourages him to give the fight game a shot.

The corrupt world of boxing was a staple of postwar Hollywood in well-known works like Body and Soul, The Set-Up and Champion and in lesser yet admirable works like Whiplash. Romantic melodrama and noirish atmospherics combine in this tale starring Dane Clark, Alexis Smith, Zachary Scott, Eve Arden and other reliables. Future "Mickey Mouse Club" host Jimmie Dodd has an uncredited role as a piano man.
In this drama, a California artist becomes a New York prizefighter after he falls in love with a married singer. Her husband was a fighter but suffered a crippling accident in the ring. The husband decides to live out his dream of becoming the world champion boxer through the artist.
