Movie Info

An interesting attempt at epic filmmaking, THE ALL AMERICAN BOY takes a look at a boxer's life inside the ring and out. Jon Voight in one of his earliest roles plays Vic Bealer, an up and coming boxer emerging from a destitute background. Bealer has troubles breaking away from his old buddies, a motley crew of directionless men going nowhere. He begins to fall into this depressing scene too deeply and struggles to continue in his brutal career choice. The film is notable for the performances of many young actors such as Voight in the lead as well as Rosalind Cash and Anne Archer. The film's narrative is told in a segmented style: "The Manly Art in Six Rounds." Shelved for several years, THE ALL AMERICAN BOY was finally released in theaters in 1973.
