The hard times of poor white fighters in California provide the background for this brilliant, unflinching and sorely overlooked masterpiece by director John Huston. Stacy Keach is Tully, a down-on-his-luck alcoholic boxer earning money as a field worker while trying for a comeback. Tully tries to pass his wisdom on to Ernie (Jeff Bridges), his 18-year-old protégé, attempting to give the kid the chances he missed.

"Gritty drama from John Huston, with Stacy Keach as a down-on-his-luck former boxer who wants to make a comeback while Jeff Bridges plays a young man wanting to start out in the sport. Although a movie about boxing, it's not really about the boxing but about lives of two different people in a tough world where there are no prisoners. Keach is magnificent as is Susan Tyrell as the woman who lives day to day inside a bottle."
