1956 Rated NR 1hr 54m

Based on boxer Rocky Graziano's autobiography and directed by Robert Wise, this poignant biopic nabbed Oscars for Cinematography and Art Direction. Raised in a slum, young Graziano (Paul Newman) has turned to a life of petty crime. He eventually discovers boxing and makes a living fighting in fixed games. But as he develops his talent, Graziano gradually gains self-respect -- and spars his way to becoming the Middleweight Champion of the World.
