No Holds Barred
POSTER #3

No Holds Barred
[Feature film, 1952]
  This "Bowery Boys" entry is an on-target satire of TV wrestling (which, if anything, is even sillier in the 1990s than it was in 1952). Through a freak of nature, Sach Jones [Huntz Hall] develops a cranium so hard that it is impervious to pain. Capitalizing on this phenomenon, Sach's pal Slip Mahoney [Leo Gorcey] enters Sach in a wrestling match, during which his great strength re-manifests itself in his fingers. With each subsequent wrestling bout, Sach's super strength shifts to another part of his body. When slated to take on real-life wrestler Hombre Montana in the ring, Sach nearly meets his Waterloo until the last moment, when he develops extra-human strength in his backside.
  Never believable for a single moment, No Holds Barred is one of the best and funniest of the 48 "Bowery Boys" films.
  Wrestlers making guest appearances include Henry Kulky (as Mike the Mauler), Pat Fraley (as himself), Brother Frank Jares (as himself), John Smith (as himself), Hombre Montana (as himself), Ted Christy (as himself), and Mike Ruby (referee).

The Wrestler
POSTER #4

The Wrestler
[Feature film, 1974]
  Promoting the world of professional wrestling at the expense of the plot itself, Frank Bass (Ed Asner) takes a stand and defends what he thinks is right.  Gamblers, mobsters, unscrupulous wrestlers, money-grubbing promoters, and fixers conspire to corrupt the industry, but Frank tries to make the game as honest and fair as it is his idealized vision.  Frank's efforts climax as he promotes an over-the-hill champion in the final matches of his career.

Swing Your Lady
POSTER #7

Swing Your Lady
[Feature film, 1938]
  Wrestler Joe Skopapolous [Nat Pendleton], together with his manager, Ed [Humphrey Bogart], and his trainers, Popeye and Shiner, arrives in a small town in the Ozarks hoping to promote a wrestling match.  Things look hopeless because there is no local candidate for Joe's opponent until Ed meets the blacksmith, a woman named Sadie.  Believing it would be a good gimmick for Joe to wrestle with Sadie, Ed offers her $100 to compete.  She readily agrees because she needs the money to buy a suite of bedroom furniture.  Unfortunately for Ed's plans, Joe meets Sadie on a training run and falls madly in love with the large woman.  Appearances by wrestler Daniel Boone Savage.

Sit Tight
POSTER #8

Sit Tight
[Feature film, 1931]
  Jojo Mullins [Joe E. Brown] has an eye for the ladies, although his heart belongs to the manager [Winnie Lightner] of the health club where he works.  Brown learns to wrestle by correspondence and is matched against a muscle-bound masked opponent named Olaf [Frank Hagney].  To make matters worse, the masked marauder is convinced that his wife has been fooling around with JoJo.  A romantic subplot involves Paul Gregory and Claudia Dell.  Gregory works for Dell's father and Dell asks her father to give Gregory a promotion so that she can spend more time with him. When Gregory refuses to be promoted without earning the position, she threatens to have him fired and Gregory quits his job.  Gregory attempts to start a new career as a championship wrestler and is trained by Lightner and Brown.  Surprisingly, this was filmed as a musical, but with the public growing weary of musicals, most of the tunes were jettisoned prior to release. What remains is a wrestling comedy filled with plenty of pre-Code friskiness.

Night and the City
POSTER #9

Night and the City
[Feature film, 1950]
  Harry Fabian [Richard Widmark] is a London hustler with ambitious plans that never work out.  One day, when he encounters the most famous Greco-Roman wrestler in the world, Gregorius the Great [Stanislaus Zbyszko], at a London wrestling arena run by his son Kristo [Herbert Lom], he dreams up a scheme that he thinks will finally be his ticket to financial independence.  Of course, as Fabian attempts to con everyone around him to get his scheme to work, he only ends up conning himself.
  This is an interesting tale of blind ambition, self-deception, broken dreams, and how a man, who always thinks he's ahead of the game, ends up tripping himself very badly.  Mike Mazurki plays The Strangler.
