Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Mark Robson's exposé of professional boxing is impressively realistic, reflecting screenwriter Budd Schulberg's intimate knowledge of the sport, but it has a difficult time being shocking with the revelation of the game's corruption. A Film a clef so closely based on the career of Italian fighter Primo Carnera that he sued Columbia Pictures after it was released, it follows his screen surrogate's career through the eyes of a former sportswriter Humphrey Bogart, who is reluctantly working as his press agent. This was Bogart's last film, and he gives a reasonable performance, but seems far too weary to play a character who needs to embody the outraged conscience of the film, while Steiger plays the fighter's sleazy manager in his best rabid-dog style. Again, the fight scenes are authentically staged, including some of the ugliest ring carnage onscreen in the era before Raging Bull (1980), but the film's predictability tends to muffle its impact.

    Best Boxing Film Ever

    Well, I have been awaiting the release of the DVD version of ''The Harder They Fall'' for years, and here it is! Since this DVD has yet to be released, this review is based on the version shown on premium TV networks. Without a doubt, this film is grittier than any boxing film ever made, and I feel it is very underrated. However, the dramatic and powerful nature of this film should appeal to anyone not even interested in the sport. This is hardly a corny, ''Rocky''-type formulated film. Simply put: Excellent performances all the way around with no lags in the plot. One of the film's outstanding effects is the sound of the punches landed, which is yet another underrated aspect of this movie. The filmaker's intent here will hit you in the gut, and despite the film's age it's an effect that still works to this day. Rather than reveal the plot, I will say this film can be watched over and over through the years. If the climatic scene and its aftermath don't leave you both sad and angry, you haven't watched this film too closely. It's a great study in the politics of boxing as written ¿ and no doubt personally experienced ¿ by an insider, and it still holds its own to this day.

    The harder they fall

    This movie was about the boxer, Primo Canerra. They changed the name is all. THe scene where Jersey Joe Walcott shows him for the bum he is, is truly a powerful and heart rending bit of cinema. The acting, direction, and story, A+. I rate it with another favorite, ''All the Kings men'' for excellent verbal exchanges.
