Ben Taggart and Betty Blythe are ex-spouses who run competing physical culture empires. Carol Hughes is Taggart's secretary, whose fiance, Tom Neal, is a flub boxer. Alex Callam runs publicity for both organizations, which neither knows. Through the usual unlikely series of events, Neal scores an unlikely knockout. The other boxer claims he has an evil eye, which causes Neal's shady manager to tout him as unstoppable.

I started looking at this movie not expecting much. The director was William Beaudine. Given a decent budget, he could turn out a fine picture, but this was a PRC production, and that meant the money would not be enough for an AIP production in the 1960s.

It wasn't a great movie, by any means, but everyone knew their lines, hit their marks and did their best. Given the mediocre script, it has aged very poorly, but it provided a few chuckles along the way.
