No Punches Pulled! If you thought “On The Waterfront” hit hard… wait till you see this one!
Humphrey Bogart delivers one of his most memorable performances as Eddie Willis, a sportswriter who joins forces with a corrupt boxing promoter (Rod Steiger). Together, they scheme to deceive Toro Moreno (Mike Lane), a clumsy, seven-foot giant, and the public into believing Moreno has a shot at the heavyweight title.
Through a carefully arranged series of fights, Toro is duped into believing that he is a capable contender, only to have his dreams – and his huge body – shattered when he is brutally beaten in a genuine fight with the heavyweight champion. Jersey Joe Walcott appears as Moreno's trainer, with former boxing great Max Baer as the heavyweight champ. Based on Budd Schulberg's novel, The Harder They Fall is a forceful drama and a fitting finale to Bogart's career.
