Rating: 3/5 -- Straightforward and simplistic.

Paul Newman and Pier Angeli are well cast as the embattled sweethearts. The title, though, is misleading... Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Robert Wise's direction is fast, aggressive and bright, and the picture is edited to give it a tremendous crispness and pace. Full Review

Director Wise keeps the action fresh and lively, drawing excellent performances from Newman, Angeli as Mrs Graziano and Mineo in a small but significant role. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- Robert Wise's sports biopic of Rocky Graziano deservedly catapulted Paul Newman to major stardom; you can spot in small parts Steve McQueen, before he became a star, and Sal Mineo. Full Review

Description by

"World's Leading Boxers Train Here Daily" says a sign outside Stillman's Gym. Thomas Rocco Barbella isn't a boxer. He's just a scrappy, desperate youth who needs dough. So he enters the gym, gives himself the made-up name of Rocky Graziano, signs on to spar for $10... and flattens a top light-heavyweight.
