Starring Bette Davis, Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart
Edward G. Robinson, Bette Davis, and Humphrey Bogart star in this hard-edged exposé of the boxing underworld. Robinson is the enterprising boxing promoter who endeavors to turn a promising young bellhop (Wayne Morris) into his newest champion—setting the stage for a conflict with his gangster rival (Bogart). Expertly directed by master craftsman Michael Curtiz, KID GALAHAD blends crime, sports, and romance into a briskly entertaining drama that set the template for many a boxing film to come.
