DIE LETZTE RUNDE (1940)

Werner Klingler, Attila Hörbiger, Camilla Horn and Charlott Daudert
$10.49

The boxer Eddie Steele is making a splendid career for himself in New York.  But that realization has made him careless and he’s been spending more time in night clubs than in the gym training.  His demanding lifestyle ultimately proves to be fatal for him.  He succumbs to the offer of his opponent’s manager to let himself be knocked out.  But Steele doesn’t exactly do that:  in the fourth round of the match, he beats his opponent to a pulp.  After a big argument with his manager, he goes missing the next day.

In New York hat der Boxer Eddie Steele eine steile Karriere vor sich. Doch das macht ihn leichtsinnig, und er ist mehr in Nachtlokalen als beim Training. Sein anspruchsvoller Lebenswandel wird ihm schließlich zum Verhängnis. Er erliegt dem Angebot eines gegnerischen Managers, sich k.o. schlagen zu lassen. Doch Steele schafft das nicht: In der vierten Runde des Kampfes schlägt er den Gegner nieder. Nach einer schweren Auseinandersetzung mit seinem Manager ist er am nächsten Tag verschwunden.
