They sponsor a brash, extroverted young bank clerk named Jim Corbett, who quickly becomes an accomplished fighter under the new Marquis of Queensbury Rules. Despite his success, the young Irish-American's social pretensions and boastful manner soon estrange him from his benefactors, who plot to give their conceited former protégé a well-deserved comeuppance. Despite this, his dazzlingly innovative footwork helps him to beat a succession of bigger and stronger men, and he finally finds himself fighting for the world's championship against his childhood idol, John L. Sullivan. Written by duke1029

Well, I am delighted to hear a rumor that this may finally be issued on
DVD. When that will happen, I don't know, but I will grab it when it's
In my humble opinion, this is Errol Flynn's most entertaining film,
especially when "Gentleman Jim" Corbett's ring career begins in the
film. Then it goes from a good film to a great one.
Few people could play arrogant men and still come off as a likable good
guy as well as Flynn could and this film is a perfect example of that.
Reportedly, this was Flynn's favorite role and I believe that. You can
just sense how much fun he was having here. Ward Bond also looks like
he was really enjoying his role playing the famous John L. Sullivan.
Bond, too, was never better.
There is just the right amount of action boxing scenes in here and they
are pretty well done, too. Corbett's family is fun to watch, too, as
they carry on in the stands during Jim's matches. Out of the arena,
Corbett's family's constant arguments and yelling can get a little too
loud and annoying but they set the stage for a fitting conclusion.
And speaking of the conclusion, Sullivan's speech to Corbett after the
big fight is very touching and the highlight of the film. Some
mean-spirited critics (Variety, for example) didn't like that ending
nor the fact that much of the film is fictionalized but - duh - most
films are fictionalized, like it or not. And, in this case, it made for
a nice story and nice ending. (In real life, Corbett was a very
soft-spoken true gentleman, not anything like Flynn's portrayal, but
Flynn still make him a good guy.)
This is one of the more entertaining classic films I have ever watched
and I eagerly wait for the DVD.
