This famous story about a punch-drunk fighter on the fast route to oblivion was first seen as a live TV drama in 1956 before becoming an acclaimed film. First written as a stage play, it was first produced on Broadway in 1985.  Mountain McClintock is 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.
