The Boxer, The Dancer and Little Dickie

In old movies almost every nightclub owner is a racketeer or gangster . . . . Almost every boxing promoter tries to get his fighters to take a dive so that the gamblers can clean up . . . . This boxing drama is no exception. While training for the ring by working as a lumberjack a boxer picks a fight with another lumberjack and is knocked out cold by the lumberjack. That is how Chopper Donovan, played by Bruce Bennett, is discovered. His owners are former boxer Slug Cassidy, played by the George W. Bush look-alike Guinn Williams, and Spider, played by Fuzzy Knight, acting without his trademark fuzzy beard. When the new champ meets a pretty girl he tells her that he is a lumberjack, hiding the fact that he is the famous Chopper Donovan, the most hated killer boxer in the ring. It turns out that her father is a washed up boxer and she will have nothing to do with fighters, especially Killer Donovan. Donovan decides to give up the fight racket, but not in time to save their relationship. He takes a job at a retired boxer's training camp teaching guys how to fight. Dickie Martin is a little boy with stars in his eyes who thinks that tough boxers are just about the biggest heroes that there are. This leads to that and things get really twisted with Donovan's girlfriend when it is discovered that her father needs an operation immediately or perish . . . . . Well . . . . . When Donovan offers to fight the up-and-coming champion to get the cash for his girlfriend's operation all of a sudden she is fine with him going back into the ring . . . . . Except that now he will only get his big payoff if he agrees to take a dive in the third round and allow the new boxer to win . . . . Little Dickie discovers that his hero is going to take a dive and he is crushed . . . . I don't think he would be so distraught even if he learned that there is not Santa Claus . . . . So here we are . . . . . Donovan must take a dive in the third round or else he won't get the money to save his girlfriend's father . . . . If he takes a dive in the third, little Dickie will lose all faith in adults and probably turn into a teenage gangster himself . . . . What to do . . . . . What to do . . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
