Celebrity 1928

This story of a pugilist's progress in romance and literature looks like a good-natured dig at Gene Tunney. Robert Armstrong is a riot as Kid O'Brien, the box-fighter, terribly in earnest but not very strong on the think-tank. Even a low-born bruiser must have "culchaw," so he proceeds to hire an actress and her mother for proper background, and the fun begins. Lina Basquette is excellent as the actress and Clyde Cook as manager is a scream. Delicious satire.
