Plot Sypnosis:

Based on the 1947 classic of the same name, this entertaining (New York Times) rags-to-riches tale about a vivacious young fighter from Chicago pulls no punches in its portrayal of boxing's dark side. Featuring the always-animated Muhammad Ali as himself, Body and Soul is a rousing good time (LA Herald-Examiner)! Golden Gloves champ Leon, played by Leon Isaac Kennedy (Lone Wolf McQuade, Too Scared to Scream) has no interest in becoming a pro boxer; instead, he wants to be a doctor. But when his little sister requires immediate and expensive medical treatments, he decides to go for the title and all the money it will bring. On his way to the top, however, Leon succumbs to the temptations that come with success: money, flesh, ego. As a result, he begins to lose everyone and everything he used to care about. Can Leon pull his life back together, or is he too far gone to be redeemed? Also starring Jayne Kennedy, Peter Lawford (Salt and Pepper, One More TIme), Perry Lang (The Hearse, Spring Break) and Academy Award® nominee* Michael V. Gazzo (The Godfather: Part II, Alligator), now watch this uplifting film in HD!

Bonus features include: Interview With Star Leon Isaac Kennedy, High Definition Blu-ray 1080p Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1), DTS-HD Master Audio , English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
