PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, Sport
The story of James Braddock, a supposedly washed-up boxer who came back to become a champion and an inspiration in the 1930s.
The filmmakers called the Griffin vs. Braddock bout scene the "thousand punches" fight, after a real Braddock quote.
Attaboy! Keep him busy!
When Jimmy Braddock wins his first comeback fight, two scenes are in the wrong order. Braddock turns and looks at Gould before Gould calls out his name as he is climbing into the ring.
Before the title appears the following: "In all the history of the boxing game, you'll find no human interest story to compare with the life narrative of James J. Braddock." - Damon Runyon (1936)
