Some great acting by Julie Harris, Mickey Rooney and Jackie Gleason. A grotesque performance by Anthony Quinn as a washed up punched drunk boxer.
Bye Bye Julie, Bye Bye http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/239238/Requiem-for-a-Heavyweight-Movie-Clip-Number-Five-.html
Personaggi pieni di sfumature, di espressione, di calore, splendidamente interpretati (su tutti Quinn, Rooney e la Harris), schiacciati dentro un film troppo corto.
All dramas should be written by Rod Serling.
Love it! Genuine and so emotive.
