Paul Newman stars as Rocky Graziano in the middleweight champion's life
story, "Somebody Up There Likes Me," directed with spirit by Robert
Wise. The film covers Rocky Barbella's young life on the mean streets
of New York, made all the meaner by his juvenile delinquent presence
and that of his friends. Totally out of control, Barbella steals, runs,
and punches his way through his home life, reform school, and prison,
including his army stint where he knocks out a corporal and goes AWOL,
then assuming the name Graziano. It's not long before his talent is put
to good use in the ring. The respectability and success he gains is
short-lived, however, when he refuses to take a dive but then fails to
report it to the boxing commission or identify the criminals.
The film covers Graziano's marriage to his wife of 47 years, Norma, and
his historic fight with Tony Zale. Pier Angeli plays the petite but
tough Norma, who knows just how to handle her husband; Eileen Heckert
is marvelous as Rocky's mother. Harold Stone, as Rocky's disillusioned
father, is very good in the difficult role of an unlikeable man with an
uneasy relationship with his son. Sal Mineo is effective as Romolo,
Rocky's friend from the neighborhood.
James Dean was to play Graziano but after his death, the role went to
Paul Newman. Words are not really adequate to describe the young
Newman's work in this film. He totally inhabits the character of
Graziano and loses what one thinks of as "Paul Newman" in the bargain.
One of the hardest accents to do without making it sound phony is a New
York one, yet Newman pulls it off with no problem. Though Dean would
have been excellent, Newman's portrayal is a treasure. He's angry,
sympathetic, scrappy, vulnerable and caring - in short, a flawed human
being. It's one of the finest performances on film.
