Barney Ross wasn't a heavyweight but rather a welterweight, dumbo.

This is the true story of Barney Ross. A heavyweight boxer and World War II Veteran. After almost getting everything he needs in life he is shot in war and has to take Morphine to help stop the pain. He then can not stop his urge to use Morphine. It later tears his entire life apart and almost looses his wife and kids. I definitely recommend this movie because it has everything. Romance, War, Boxing, and a little bit of Comedy.

another boxing bio-pic

Effective bio-pic from Andre De Toth. The direction is very energetic and the complex visuals make for an engaging film. The war scenes and the withdrawal scenes manage to be both gritty and proto-surreal.
Super Reviewer

It was a pretty good movie for what it was. I thought it did a good job with showing the highs and lows.

Decent biopic with a dark film noir look to it. I don't know the real story of Barney Ross, so I'm not sure how closely this movie follows his life. The drug rehab scenes were riveting.
