I have published my top fifteen sports movies of all-time at www. fredpahlke.com. Number fourteen follows. These are movies that I are significant as they display sport in a way that is unique and held my interest in a great way.
14. Gentleman Jim (Warner-1942): Errol Flynn as Gentleman Jim Corbett, the man that beat James L. Sullivan for the heavyweight boxing title around the turn of the century (1892 to be exact). Great story and plenty of action and emotion as this fictitious version of James J. and James L is as good as it gets. The final scene where the former champ gives his belt buckle to Corbett is one of the best. Respect in sports is so valuable and this is shown is spades. Ward Bond’s James L is one of his best roles. Flynn is wonderful and Alexis Smith is not only hot but can give as much as she could take. A winner.
