Solid Warners boxing yarn - you can't go wrong with Eddie G. and Bette.

Audience Reviews for Kid Galahad

Kid Galahad is just an okay boxing movie when you consider the talent involved. Edward G. Robinson seems to be just kind of... there and Humphrey Bogart merely turns in a canned Murderer's Row performance. Bette Davis plays a forgettable role but considering she's never looked better, I didn't mind. Kid Galahad definitely doesn't fall into the essential viewing category but if you're on an Edward G or Bogie kick that just won't die, its not a bad way to chase the dragon...

This movie brings the words quaint and sentimental to mind. This movie combines elements of romance and sports drama in a nice way, but it was too nice I think, it could have been more realistic. In other words more conflict. Good, but it could be better.

Excellent fight picture with Edward G and Bette working well together, her role, Fluff, seems atypical for Davis but its nice to see her in something a little different and of course she infuses the part with her customary grit.
