  • Charley Davis IS Jewish

    TCM Notes on BODY AND SOUL state, "Although some modern sources identify Garfield's character, Charley Davis, as Jewish, in the film his character is never identified as such." That is not so. Miss Tedder (Mary Currier) very clearly reads from Anna Davis' (Anne Revere) loan application form, "Race: White. Religion: Jewish. Nationality: American." I believe that knowing Charley to be an American Jew living in that period of world history adds enormously to our sympathizing with his inner conflicts.

    One of the greatest boxing movies of all time, and John Garfield is at his very best. He gives an incredible performance. Canada Lee also gives an amazing performance in a supporting role. Outstanding cinematography, excellent editing. A truly classic film noir.
