Movie Info

As a teenager, African-American Joe Louis (Coley Wallace) gives up on the violin to try his hand at boxing. A few years later, he' s the 1934 Golden Gloves champion. He goes pro, trains with Chappie Blackburn (James Edwards), and enjoys an unprecedented string of victories. But Louis faces more than just tough opponents in the ring. Prejudice follows him throughout his career, and his bouts with Germany's Max Schmeling are fraught with racial tension on an international level.

Audience Reviews for The Joe Louis Story

  • Dec 31, 2018
    With all the excitement of cold toast, this Hollywood style biopic features an actor playing Louis throughout the piece, but cuts to footage of the real guy when it comes time to feature the fighting - which is the sole reason to endure this lifeless "homage". Of course, the story, blandly told, might be of interest to fight fans nonetheless ...
