The story of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a boxer wrongly imprisoned for murder, and the people who aided in his fight to prove his innocence.
Joey Giardello sued the film's producers for libel over the depiction of his fight with Carter. The case was settled out of court and Norman Jewison agreed to make a statement on the DVD version that, "Giardello no doubt was a great fighter."
Ladies and gentlemen, this fine young fighter will be right here in Pittsburg on the boxing cog, this Monday night.
When Lezra visits Rubin in prison and they are talking at the table, Rubin is shown holding a photo in his hands. The reverse shot shows Rubin with his hands clasped and the photo sitting on the table.
