Yet again, I could not find a link of Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox introducing this 1972 classic boxing drama, so my readers will have to read his introduction here. The original airdate of this episode was June 12, 1988. The director of Fat City is John Huston, who has directed such classics as The Maltese Falcon and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre to name just two examples. In case you readers are interested, here is a link to my list of my favorite films by him. Cox is right on just about everything here including the intimacy of it’s drama.
Anyway, here is a youtube link to the trailer below:
