FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Circus, the hard-working manager of prizefighter Kid Reagan, hits upon a scheme to publicize his cauliflowered protégé: he engages a hardboiled mother-and-daughter act from vaudeville to play The Kid's sweet mother and sweetheart and then hires an ex-newspaperman to write poems to which The Kid signs his own name. The poems are printed in the society columns of a newspaper, and The Kid is soon sufficiently well known to warrant a try for the title. Circus convinces The Kid's "fiancée," Jane, that she is bad for The Kid, and Jane walks out on him just before the championship fight. Greatly angered by the taunts of the crowd, The Kid wins the fight and, to complete his happiness, finds Jane waiting for him after the match.
