Daniel, a religious young Southern boxer (Dewey Martin), gets his break when he is taken up by fight manager Willy Wurble (Keenan Wynn), but is horrified to learn that Wurble is
fixing a match. Preaching his own message about morality and God, Daniel changes Wurble's wicked ways and gets a clean fight with Sixty Jubel (Charles Buchinsky).
Directed by Fred M. Wilcox,
with Shelley Winters as Wynn's wife, this is a sentimental minor entry from MGM. Buchinsky, of course, would do rather more as Charles Bronson.
