The Harder They Fall

The Harder They Fall

Directed by Mark Robson • 1956 • United States
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Rod Steiger, Jan Sterling

Humphrey Bogart made his final screen appearance in this hard-hitting boxing exposé, which stands as one of the greatest films ever made about the sport. He plays an unemployed sports writer who gets an unsavory look into the seedy side of the fight racket when he makes a deal with a crooked promoter (Rod Steiger) to act as PR man for his new heavyweight discovery. Based on a novel by Budd Schulberg and directed with raw realism by Mark Robson, THE HARDER THEY FALL pulls no punches in its brutal portrait of boxing’s corrupt underbelly.
