If you get it you will see that Brando has a bit of his eyebrow missing as though from scar tissue,to prep for the role he became great friends with Roger Donaghue a ranked fighter,Donaghue was the model for Brandos make up ,even down to the puffy eye and "scars".

Good movie a lot of old fighters, I think Slapzie Maxie Rosenberg was in it, Tami M.TonyG. and a few other charactor faces

Ryan was a good college boxer,a pretty tough man in real life ,very underated actor too imo,his portrayal of "Stoker "is magic.

Manassa is correct. Sorry Conteh. Third guy on the left is Arizmendi. The first guy on the left is also a Baby...

Steiger was an amazing actor.

Vintage Rod. He lost out on the Oscar to Lee Marvin in Cat Ballou too (I think).

Ryan is an all-time favorite of mine. He was great in "Crossfire" too. As far as "real-life tough guys" go, Word was that Ryan and Mitchum were serious guys who were certified ass-kickers.

Damn I hate it when that happens. I thought "I'm sure it's BA but says it's not and someone laughs".

Nah.. if anyone laughs, be like Thunderpower after he said that Duran got Kod in his prime and PBF had as good a right as Hearns -and claim to be "only kidding".
