| Joe is a bit dim in this one!
Many of the Joe Palooka films from Monogram Pictures are posted on YouTube currently. So far, I've seen the first and second film, though the third is not available. This fourth installment is called "Joe Palooka in Fighting Mad" and features Joe going blind in the first few minutes of the movie!!

After his latest fight, Joe's vision vanishes. The doctor says this is due to damage from a concussion...a pretty common thing considering boxers are bashing each other in the head all the time! Following surgery, Joe is told not to box for at least a year in order to allow his body to heal and so Knobby decides to use his energy to coach another boxer in the interim. Naturally, problems result after Joe announces his retirement...and it's up to Joe to save the day by returning to the ring. Oh, and oddly, Joe and Knobby never even mentioned his eye problems in regard to all this!

I am glad this is only a movie, as the plot is insane. Imagine going back to boxing after losing your vision! Still, it is a decent installment of the series and worth seeing.
