Champion 1949
"Champion" opens with war veteran Midge Kelly (Kirk Douglas) planning to open a diner with his handicapped brother Connie (Arthur Kennedy). While hitchhiking the two men encounter Johnny Dunne (John Day), a small-time boxer, and his flashy girlfriend Grace (Marilyn Maxwell), who persuade Midge to enter the ring to earn some extra money for the diner. At first he only sees boxing as a short term financial opportunity but soon he's hooked by his success and slowly slides into a spiral of con games, seduction, betrayal and violence...
