There has never been a more complete fighter than Joe Louis having all the attributes in one compact explosive package that made him the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time. He was world heavyweight champion from June 1937 to March 1949; his reign of 11 years & 8 months remains the longest in division history, successfully defending his title 25 times before retiring in 1949 only to return, because of his dire financial situation, to lose title shot against Ezzard Charles in 1950 and then to Rocky Marciano in 1951. Robert Gordon directed this remarkably accurrate adaptation of Louis's life that includes archive newsreel footage of his major fights, and his impact on the attitudes of all Americans during a time of racial intolerance when for prehaps the first time ever, blacks and whites rooted with all their hearts for their guy, the same guy...Joe 'The Brown Bomber Louis'
