"The movie is a two-fisted bruiser of a rags-to-riches fight story, as fast and stinging as a workout on the punching bag. W.S. Van Dyke directs this saga of a has-been fight manager (Walter Huston) who rebuilds his career on the muscled back of a sailor (Baer) with lightning in his gloves and a mobster's moll (Loy) in his corner. The climactic scene pits Baer against then-reigning World Champion Primo Carnera (Baer would take his title the next year) in a thrill-packed fight refereed by ex-champ Jack Dempsey"--Container

3 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack and the Beanstalk: "A ... adaptation of the ... fairy tale steeped in comedy, Abbott and Costello style. Reminiscent of the cinematography of films like The Wizard of Oz, the movie begins in black and white, later morphing into full cinematic color. The story begins as Jack (Lou Costello), a professional baby-sitter, and his "agent" Dink (Bud Abbott), go to the home of Eloise Larkin (Shaye Cogan) to watch Eloise's troublemaking nephew Donald (David Stollery). As he reads the book Jack and the Beanstalk to Donald, Jack falls asleep and begins to dream that he and his cohorts are part of this fantastical world where he encounters magical creatures as well as a troubled prince and princess. It is a version of the classic fairy tale but with a humorous and unique Abbott and Costello style twist."--Container

The harder they fall : Requiem for a heavyweight( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The harder they fall, Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart stars as a cynical sportswriter taking on the corrupt heavyweights within the professional world of boxing. In what was to be his final film appearance, Bogart is unforgettable in this hard-hitting role that pulls no punches in a quest to send a boxing scam down for the count. The blow-by-blow action continues then with Requiem for a heavyweight, a powerhouse film that again tackles wrong-doing in the ring. Knockout performances from Anthony Quinn, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney and Julie Harris mark a film that is at once tragic, triumphant and truly gripping, with special appearances from boxing champs Muhammad Ali (billed as Cassius Clay) and Jack Dempsey."--Container
