This picture is a further example of clever acting saving the day, for there is little in this narrative of horse racing and pugilistic bouts that possesses much akin to originality.
A good picture, almost entirely by virtue of an inspired performance by a boy, Jackie Cooper.
A film with a lot of heart, unafraid to bare its emotions.
The film is so dated that it creaks.
King Vidor's first (and still best) version of this sentimental saga is worth seeing for the performances of Wallace Beery (who won the Oscar) as down-on-his-luck prizefigher as terrific child actor Jackie Cooper as his son.
Beery, a former vaudeville comedian and cross-dresser, is an expert at physical comedy: his drunk act isn't very realistic, but it's fun to watch.
A grittier version than the crappolo that they made in the seventies. This story probably played itself out many times among the down and out with similar tragic results.
I've read other reviews that have called this sentimental and sappy. I guess I enjoy that on occasion. I identified with Beery's character trying to get by, struggling to improve himself. I also like performances by children who are precocious enough to show innocence at times, but mostly have a toughness and worldliness to match their adult co-stars.
