    Champ, The (1931) -- (Movie Clip) Ya Big Palooka

    LA boxing promoters visiting Tijuana rightly conclude that former champ Wallace Beery (title character) is not up to a fight, his posse (Roscoe Ates, Edward Brophy) splitting, leaving son Dink (Jackie Cooper) in an early, intimate scene from director King Vidor, in The Champ, 1931.
