Miracle Kid (1941)
Amusing boxing comedy that has a great deal going on and going for it. I'm not really sure how to explain everything that happens since there are numerous plots and sub-plots wandering through this. The easiest thing to say is that not very good boxer suddenly begins to win his fights. Unknown to him they have been fixed in order to build up his stature. Wandering through this are a health guru, an all seeing madame and a publicity man.
The cast is first rate and they handle the comedy with great ease. I like that the story is nicely balanced with enough going on to keep you interested. I know in some of the poverty row comedies things can occasionally get one note, but thats not the case here. Forgive me for not saying more but its kind of hard to say more than this is a nice little film.
