This film was very loosely based on the life of prizefighter James John "Gentleman Jim" Corbett. Corbett won the world heavyweight championship in 1892 and lost it to Bob Fitzsimmons in 1897. For more information about Corbett's life, please see the note to Gentleman Jim above. Modern sources include Tom Steele, Pascale Perry, Herman Nolan and Herman Hack in the cast.
