Jimmy Braddock goes to Central Park in March, 1935 and walks through a Hooverville in search of his friend Mike Wilson. New York's primary Depression Hooverville in 1935 was located on 10th Avenue near the East River (as portrayed in My Man Godfrey). There was a small Hooverville in Central Park located in the drained reservoir, not on the grass as portrayed in the film. When adequate fill could be found for it, the homeless were evicted, and the area was transformed into the park's Great Lawn. Landscaping work was completed by April, 1933, so Central Park's Hooverville had been gone a full two years when Braddock visits it in Cinderella Man.
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)
