Genre: Drama, Gangsters, Sports

Tagline: The romantic stage success that captured a nation... is now a great motion picture

Plot: In his debut performance, Holden scores as a violin prodigy who makes some extra dough on the side as a prizefighter. Not likely, but the performances make it work, particularly Stanwyck's as a corrupting influence. Tragic consequences result when she lures the golden boy from practicing his scales. Based on Odets' 1937 play. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Score.
