The Kid
Rod Steiger stars in this story about Jimmy, a young man who has both talent and enthusiasm for boxing, and an elderly trainer and former fighter who sees in Jimmy the makings of a champion. However, Jimmy's parents don't approve of his ambitions as a pugilist, and he finds himself leading a double life in order to follow his own dreams without betraying his family. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
