Movie Info

Ward Guisenberry (Wayne Morris) does not plan on being a boxer, but when he fights to defend the honor of boxing manager Nick Donati's (Edward G. Robinson) mistress, Fluff (Bette Davis), at a party, he leaves boxer Sam McGraw unconscious. The problem is that McGraw belongs to gangster Turkey Morgan (Humphrey Bogart), who insists that the two take it to the ring in a fair match. When Ward unexpectedly wins the bout, his fame grows -- but so does the animosity toward him.

Audience Reviews for Kid Galahad

  • Sep 05, 2010
    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.

    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...

    despite bogie, edward g and bette davis, the film is just ok. the usual boxing cliches...anyway it's gotta be better than the musical remake with elvis :p

    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.
