Our season finale discusses the 1949 film CHAMPION starring Kirk Douglas. We discuss the film as well as the legacy of KIrk Douglas who sadly just passed away. 

Scrappy Michael "Midge" Kelly (Kirk Douglas), on the run from a shotgun marriage and needing to help support his handicapped brother, Connie (Arthur Kennedy), angles his way into a short-term job as a boxer. His life of hard knocks has given Midge a fiery temper and a will to win that quickly makes him one of the most popular fighters on the circuit. But when he gets instructed to take a dive in a championship bout, his bosses learn that no one tells Midge Kelly what to do.

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
