John Garfield delivers as Oscarr nominated performance in this knockout story of driving ambition that stands as a classic of its genre. Garfield stars as Charley Davis, a strong-willed young prizefighter whose ruthless quest for a shot at the title forces him to mortgage his humanity to a corrupt boxing syndicate. But when faced with the chance to regain his self-respect, Charley climbs into the ring one last time - in an unforgettable climatic fight scene shot by two time Oscarr winner James Wong Howe (Hud). Widely regarded as one of the best boxing stories ever made, Body and Soul boasts a strong supporting cast, an Oscarr nominated screenplay by Abraham Polonsky (Force of Evil) and a 1947 Academy Awardr for Best Editing. Directed by Robert Rossen (The Hustler).
