 Title   Gentleman Jim
This biography of the Irish-American boxer James J. Corbett takes us from illegal bare knuckle fights (the Irish way) to the establishment of the sport of prizefighting and the Marquis of Queensbury rules. The grand majority of Corbett's long list of opponents were Irish, including, of course, the legendary John L. Sullivan from whom he took the title of Heavyweight champion. Corbett's Irish roots are made clear in scenes showing his family which is sometimes shown as an embarrassment to him when with his society friends. The film suggests the Corbett learned to fight from his two brothers who he brawled with frequently. link to
