Director Robert Rossen may have made his best film with "Body and Glory". John Garfield plays Charley Davis who is an up and coming boxing star. He is great in the part and has the help of the great cinematographer James Wong Howe to film the fight scenes. These fight scenes are so real that you feel for Garfield receiving such jarring blows. There have been many fight films, but for realism, this is the place to stop. A great movie that no sport fan of boxing should miss.!

"Body And Soul" packs a real wallop._____ After seeing so many other boxing films, including Raging Bull and Rocky, it's the adrenaline-charged Body And Soul with all of its grit, glory and gut-felt energy that wins, hands-down._____ Body And Soul stars dynamite-actor John Garfield who literally busts his guts in his role as Charley Davis, the fighter who'll do almost anything to get to the top - And so he does with tragic results._____ Released in 1947 - Body And Soul is, without a doubt, an absolutely gripping Drama, overflowing, from start to finish, with stark heart-felt realism. The performances in this film are nothing short of riveting and the sensational fight scenes are a sight to behold._____ When it comes to a film like Body And Soul - They sure don't make 'em like this one anymore.
