Many people believe that this famous story about a punch drunk fighter on the fast route to oblivion began as a TV drama before becoming an acclaimed film. In fact, it was first written as a play and was first produced on Broadway in 1985 and revived to acclaim in 1996. John Lithgow starred in a magnificent performance as Mountain McClintock, the fighter who doesn't know when to quit. McClintock is a trusting soul, and his innocence proves his ultimate undoing as his conniving manager dresses him as Daniel Boone and enters him as a comic relief on the wrestling circuit. After a drunken rampage upon discovering the manager's treachery, Mountain arrives at a decision that enables him to recover something of his damaged pride and self respect.

Captivating story; good character development.

Requiem for a Heavyweight is a well put together drama with wonderfully crafted characters. It takes place in the 1940's so it is a period piece, but would stand the test of time today with good actors.
