Cinderella Man: The James J. Braddock Story

2005 NR

Based on Jeremy Schaap's best-selling sports biography, this fascinating film explores the remarkable true-life story of boxer Jim Braddock -- the man who inspired Ron Howard's Cinderella Man. In part to earn money for his family during the throes of the Great Depression and in part because he loved the sport, Braddock defied all odds to win the World Heavyweight Championship when few believed he had it in him.
