... But hard not to like.

Ben Lyon is a cocky boxer. The marvelous Constance Cummings plays a gal who becomes both his manager and his wife.

Lyon does a good job in the fight scenes. He is also appealing when not in the ring: His character has an attitude about women's being in their place. Yet, his wife is managing him. And Thelma Todd is a society girl who manages him in her way, too.

The supporting cast is good. We even have Nat Pendleton in a small part.

It's not memorable. It's not a naughty sort of pre-Code film. You'll like it, though.
