Gentleman Jim (1942)- Errol Flynn and Ward Bond

On TCM Sat 9/24/16-Gentleman Jim (1942)- A very enjoyable WB movie directed by Raoul Walsh with Errol Flynn as 19th Century boxing champion Jim Corbett and a great cast with Alexis Smith, Jack Carson, Alan Hale. But I think the performance of one of my favorite character actors Ward Bond as legendary boxing great John L. Sullivan is a standout. Catch the scene where the defeated Sullivan graciously shows up at Corbett’s victory party turning over the championship belt- It is yet another great achievement by Ward Bond to be remembered!
