[solid copy, but with some unsightly staining to edges of text block (including at lower right corner, extending into corners of pages throughout most of the book), fraying to cloth at top edge of rear cover (slight exposure of boards), one-time owner's name rubber-stamped on ffep; the jacket has some shallow paper loss along the top edge (possibly from insect-nibbling), various other chips/small tears/creasing, still reasonably attractive]. Novel about a boxer who's charged with murder at the climax of his career, and has to take it on the lam, "riding the brake beams as a fugitive." There's "a girl and some crippled kids" involved, too, in this "authentic, uncensored, rousing story of the prize ring." Filmed to pretty good effect by Warner Bros. (who else?), with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as the fighter and Loretta Young as his girl.
