Unfortunately the pugilist is drug down by booze and a gold-digging blond. His friends assist him, he makes up with his former gal, and gets together with his son who wasn't interested at all interested in attending that expensive school.

Audience Reviews for The Contender

  • Aug 13, 2018
    Buster Crabbe in this simplistic morality tale about a trucker turned boxer who gets so big headed after a couple of wins that he ignores his family and friends. No, it's not a description of Mike Tyson, but it could be. Guess what happens by the end? Aww, nevermind! Glenn Strange is a welcome addition as the best friend.
