Feedback is always useful it's nice to see so many great movies being mentioned. I'll try to answer everyone's points (whether they like it or not. but a general point first: As soon as we started making the show, we realised quite how much of a story we had to tell. The running joke during production was that we should lobby for a 6 part series, or release a director's cut DVD! We wanted to start at the beginning, which took us back at least as far as the 1890s (though you could argue the photographic pioneer Muybridge was there even earlier. so there's a lot of history there and, as Kevin Mitchell said in the programme, 500 films as contenders for screen time. From our end we were determined not to do one of those "I Love The. style clips shows, where you mention dozens different films but give them no more than 30 seconds each on screen. Instead we wanted to tell the story of the boxing movie as a genre, and cover the films we did cover properly. Inevitably, some films didn't make the cut as a result - me, the director and producer all had favourites that were lost along the way. Leeds1970 and others - Fat City was probably the most glaring example of the above. We had a whole section filmed about it, and we interviewed Stacy Keach. It was very much a last minute cut, though it broke our hearts to make it. Oskar W - didn't have time to cover Cinderella Man sadly, but it did at least get shown after the Sunday night transmission of our film! Dunk8 - a lot of people seem to feel that way. Poor old Woody. BRDMAN/Abdi - I like Warrior a lot, certainly a boxing movie by any other name. Pablo_hanc - Crying Fist is great, that was one that had slipped by me until we started making the film, but really glad I caught up with it. johnny b goode and Rufus - yes, the Graziano reference made me wince when it went out, can only hold up our hands for letting that through. I did know he was a middle not a heavy but sometimes people slip up. The funny thing is, we originally had a section filmed about Somebody Up There Likes Me that was to go in 5 minutes later and actually called him a middleweight. Not sure if that would have made it worse. chrisP - I think you may have missed the start of the show, there was a good 10 minutes on Raging Bull at the beginning! John Thompson - Thanks for the kind words, much appreciated and glad you liked it. Couldn't agree more about Body and Soul and The Set Up, I hope our film points people who haven't seen them towards them. Mailer is great on boxing also. paul - I think the profile of the sport has ups and downs rather than being terminal. Certainly I miss the days when boxing was on BBC1, but in Britain at least there are well-attended fights and lots of them taking place every weekend right now, and lots of kids turning up at gyms. physical_graffiti - sorry for the Million Dollar Baby spoiler, certain things not my call. Again, Girlfight was something we talked about including, though if anything I prefer the documentary On The Ropes from a couple of years before it and was meant to have been one of its inspirations. We did get as far as talking to its director Nanette Burnstein, but will have to be another one for the directors' cut DVD. Again, thanks to all for comments and thanks for watching. Hopefully we made something with a bit of substance to it even with Graziano moving up in weight and no Fat City. Danny.

BBC Blogs - TV blog - Boxing At The Movies: Kings Of The Ring Thursday 28 February 2013, 14:41 Looking through old family photos recently, I found one of me taken in the spring of 1982. That makes me 10, by which time I was already besotted with films. But in the picture I'm nowhere near a cinema. Instead, with a look of earnest concentration, I'm reading an inky copy of the weekly magazine Boxing News. I loved boxing then as I still do now, having grown up watching bouts from the Albert Hall or Wembley Arena on the BBC. And my two youthful passions came together in the boxing movie. 'The ring is where you stand alone to be tested' So naturally I seized the chance to make Boxing At The Movies: Kings Of The Ring, a documentary that tells the story of the boxing film from the earliest days of the motion picture through the hardscrabble 30s, the noir 50s, on into the present day. Given my age, my first big-screen experience would come with a definitively 80s flavour – Rocky III, with Sylvester Stallone 's much-loved hero facing brutal challenger Clubber Lang. But while I would see more critically admired fight films in years to come, I still remember the jolt it sent through the shabby cinema, the charge of emotion and adrenalin every boxing movie has in its make-up. Again and again filmmakers have returned to tales of the ring Three decades later, I found myself filming at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, at the foot of what are known around the world after their use by Stallone as the Rocky Steps. Even at dusk the nearby statue of his most famous character had drawn a queue of visitors eager to have their picture taken with it, kids, grandparents and groups of muscle-bound dudes all hoisting their arms aloft besides the bronze Italian Stallion. But for all Rocky's adoration, if the boxing film has a spiritual home, it's not Philadelphia – but 100 miles north in New York. There, the cast of the boxing movie story includes gangsters, cinematic pioneers, political radicals, and everyone from Mike Tyson to Stanley Kubrick. And of course Martin Scorsese, creator of the peerless Raging Bull. Killer's Kiss: Kubrick was fastidious in capturing the people and Manhattan he already knew intimately To make our documentary, director Angus McIntyre and I criss-crossed Manhattan from Harlem to the Lower East Side – and just as every writer, fighter or filmmaker we talked to wanted to discuss Scorsese's masterpiece, so everywhere we went, someone claimed a moment from it had been filmed where we stood. An elderly attendant in a cramped parking lot swore blind to us that a major scene had been shot right there on the tarmac, though he seemed uncertain as to which. Re-watching the movie for the umpteenth time that night in my hotel room, I confess I couldn't find it either. Maybe I should look again – with a film this good, the search would never be a chore. And for old times' sake I might just look out Rocky III as well. Danny Leigh is the presenter of Boxing At The Movies: Kings Of The Ring.

5 /10 Show-business with blood Boxing and film goes back to the early days of cinema with footage surviving from Edison's days. Boxing has always been a popular subject for movies because you can have stories of not only pugilists slugging it out in the ring but stories of crooked managers and weak willed boxers. Danny Leigh examines the popularity of boxing films but also how boxers transgress themselves into film by way of documentaries such as Muhammed Ali in When we were Kings or playing themselves as Mike Tyson does in The Hangover films. We go through some of the most popular boxing films. On the Waterfront, Rocky, Raging Bull, Million Dollar Baby. We have an academic explaining the relevance of the films and the examination of race, gender and films as well. In the early years, there was resistance of showing footage of actual black boxers beating up white boxers and movies substituted stories of black boxers with whites ones. However the documentary felt a little empty. Leigh might be a boxing fan as well as a film buff but so many interesting boxing films were ignored, those that appear in different genres such as comedy. There is a rich tapestry out there and although interesting to see Kubrick's take on a boxing film, we needed more diverse nuggets like that. 2 out of 2 found this helpful. Was this review helpful?

Permalink One-Note Documentary That Soon Outstays its Welcome There have been many boxing movies produced ever since the silent era that have proved entertaining as well as instructive: KID GALAHAD, THE HARDER THEY FALL, ROCKY, and RAGING BULL. Danny Leigh seeks to account for their popularity in this documentary with the help of several actors, technicians and academics. One reason for their success is that they are relatively easy to film. Within a restricted area the two pugilists endure a variety of emotions as well as pain, while the managers, trainers, gangsters and other hangers-on try to advise them as how the fighters should win (or lose. Fights can often function as center-pieces within a drama, as well as providing plenty of material for drama, especially focused on the relationship between good and evil. To be honest, that's about it. While the documentary included testimony from academics such as Sarah Churchwell (from the University of East Anglia) about gender relationships, disruption and boxing matches, such comments seemed vaguely peripheral to the issue. Likewise any references to man's tendencies towards brute forced seemed generalized and unrepresentative (there are legions of men who harbor no such instincts. The documentary offered plenty of clips to illustrate its points, but nonetheless still seemed too long and repetitive in content. There was sufficient material here for a half-hour program, but stretched out to a one-hour length, the content seemed desperately thin. 1 out of 1 found this helpful. Permalink.
