Description by OLDIES.com:

The record-breaking career of Joe Louis is packed with staggering triumphs, both in and out of the ring. While squaring off against legendary fighters, the champ struggled to overcome racial prejudice in the boxing world. He made history by becoming World Heavyweight Champion and defending his title for twelve years - longer than any fighter before or since. Although his reign was troubled by bankruptcy and marital strife, through his skill and determination the "Brown Bomber" ensured himself a place in boxing history forever. The Joe Louis Story seamlessly blends the drama of the champ's life with actual footage from his greatest fights, including matches with Rocky Marciano, Max Schmeling, Primo Carnera, Max Baer, and Jim Braddock.

Product Description:

A serviceable, if stilted, biopic about the eponymous hero in boxing and racial equality, who became heavyweight champ in the '30s despite overwhelming prejudice and Max Schmelling. Real-life boxer Coley Wallace brings a boxer's authenticity to his portrayal of Joe Louis.
