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.
Russell Crowe spent almost a year training for the boxing sequences. He set up a ring and training facilities on his farm in Australia.
Attaboy! Keep him busy!
When Braddock has to pick up the bowl to eat before the fight because he has no spoon, a spoon can be clearly seen on the table. He isn't supposed to have a spoon until later in the film.
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)
