Immortal heartthrob Elvis Presley stars as Walter Gulick, an ex-G.I. who returns to his rustic hometown in upstate New York looking for work as an auto mechanic. Ambitious but naive, he's reluctantly roped into becoming a boxer by dubious manager-turned-innkeeper Willy Grogan(They Shoot Horses, Don't They). With his loyal trainer Lew Nyach (Charles Bronson) at his side, the iron-jawed, anvil-fisted Elvis quickly becomes the top-drawing champion "Kid Galahad." But when the mob tries to muscle in on the action, the cool-headed fighter is forced to pull no punches in the ultimate bout to protect his honor and his dreams. The mesmerizing voice of Elvis, a romantic original soundtrack, and breathtaking scenery makes this popular musical remake a knockout hit for the entire family.
A musical remake of the 1937 film with Edward G. Robinson. Here, a typically naive Presley stumbles out of the army and into the waiting arms of a boxing coach who molds him into a powerhouse fighter. But the King really just wants to settle down and start a family.
Walter Gulick, a sweet-natured country boy (who also sings), enters the fight game after discovering he has a killer punch. He rises through the boxing ranks, eventually getting a shot at the championship. But before the bout, a nefarious hotel manager tells Walter to take a dive, so he can make lots of dough. Will the song-belting boxer really go down' Or will he do the right thing and fight his heart out'
