Hitchhiking west with his lame brother Connie, Midge Kelly is hustled unprepared into a pro boxing match. Though he's severely beaten, manager Tommy Haley finds him promising. In California, Midge and Connie find nothing but a menial job from which Midge gets relief by seducing Emma, a lovely young waitress. One shotgun marriage later, ambitious Midge falls back on the only option he knows: boxing. Seduced by cheering crowds, money, and a succession of blondes, Midge becomes more and more of a hero in public...and a heel in private.

Every woman goes for a... CHAMPION, kiss by kiss... blow by blow... he was the... CHAMPION, Fighting or loving, he was the... CHAMPION, This is the only sport in the world where two guys get paid for doing something they'd be arrested for if they got drunk and did it for nothing.

A tight, gripping drama worth more to the movie customer than many multi-million epics.

Frank Planer's photography has much drama as the script as it begins to tell the story right under the titles and continues compelling on its course through the grim, relentless narrative.

The Set-Up, made the same year, is infinitely superior.
