The hard times of poor white fighters in California provide the background for this brilliant, unflinching and sorely overlooked masterpiece by director John Huston. Stacy Keach is Tully, a down-on-his-luck alcoholic boxer earning money as a field worker while trying for a comeback. Tully tries to pass his wisdom on to Ernie (Jeff Bridges), his 18-year-old protégé, attempting to give the kid the chances he missed.

Along with Wise Blood, one of the two best and least well-known John Huston films. Gritty portrait of down on his luck boxer Stacy Keach. Great supporting cast including Susan Tyrell as philosophizing barfly.

This neglected treasure is perhaps the best film ever made about boxing. A classic piece of Americana and one of Huston's greatest achievements.
