Champion

Synopsis: Midge Kelly, hitchhiking west with lame brother Connie, is hustled unprepared into a pro boxing match. Though he's severely beaten, manager Tommy Haley finds him promising. Arrived in California, Midge and Connie find nothing but a menial job from which Midge gets relief by seducing Emma, a lovely young waitress. One shotgun marriage later, ambitious Midge falls back on the only option he knows: boxing. Seduced by cheering crowds, money, and a succession of blondes, Midge becomes more and more of a hero in public...and a heel in private.

- Will...

Vale.

Thank you, and hopefully can pay

one day with the same currency.

HELP NEEDED:

- Yes.

You do not need this.

Are you looking for work?

We hope to do anything.

Although certain to be

something better than this dump.

Connie, what if we left

back to Las Vegas?

Make up another story because I

seems that the girl...

...Do not swallow it.

Let's see, what do you want?

A little more respect

owners, if you do not mind.

- What about Bud?

- Bud?

Yes, where is our esteemed partner?

Lew. Lew.

The cook. What a great establishment.

Cook, why not

prepare a special dish...

...For your new boss?

Less kidding, this place is not for sale.

- What did you say?

- What you have heard.

Hey, my brother and I bought...

...A month ago that part of

Bud Taylor, you know?

That's it.

Just last month that dismissed him.

That guy is even more thief

than I thought.

Who owns the site?

His.

Stay. Housing, food and

$ 100 per month for both.

You sleep in the back room.

And watch out for my daughter.

It is still a baby.

You better scrub dishes

we've ever had.

Thank you.

My mother taught me little one.

Emma, I'm going up to take a nap.

Take care to make it all clean.

Yes, Lew.

And do not dawdle,

much to do.

I do not entertain.

Do not take this wrong, you

so many things on my mind.

I do not bother me.

Thank you, sir.

Lew wants to clear this.

Sure.

So, no. Are not you

taught to sweep?

Teach you.

A big man as a

sweeping cathedral and do not know.

You have to do with decision.

You mean like this?

Fresco.

You do it very well.

You're a cool.

I do not want.

Vale.

In this way.

Well?

I wanted to talk to you.
