Quick Daily Review #125: Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962)

June 8, 2015 // 0 Comments

Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) This is a very interesting and historically significant film for a number of reasons. In the opening scene we see Muhammad Ali (Still Cassius Clay at the time) in a boxing match with Mountain Rivera (Anthony Quinn) in a bout so one sided it forces Rivera to retire. Facing retirement now, Rivera finds that he has few marketable skills and that his only option may be to begin a career in the, to him, detestable “rigged” world of professional wrestling. Wrestling fans be forewarned here, the world of pro grappling here is portrayed as a seedy, sleazy [...]
