    it's pretty corny but it was great fun seeing 21-year old william holden in his first important role as violinist turned boxer joe bonaparte. i swear i didn't recognize him for at least 10 mins. and of course he falls for barbara stanwyck :)

    Barbara Stanwyck is fine as usual and William Holden does well considering it was his first lead but Lee J. Cobb, usually a fine actor, overdoes his part to the nth degree.
