Default Requiem for a heavy weight

Woke up to this flick on an old movie channel this morning. 1962.The plot is pointless and stuipd but Jackie Gleason is in it as a boxing manager to Anthony Quinn who lost a fight to Cassius Clay and now Gleason owes some bookies some serious cash.

They went after him and I'll tell ya, that was no stunt double. I never knew that fat guy could run so fast.

And who knew he was a crooner? From "Papa's Delicate Condition". Great flick. The song actually starts at 1:55
