Glory Road, The

Date produced: 1938

Filmmaker(s):

Clifford Decker

Description:

"The Glory Road is a film story of flying fists and hard punching youngsters battling their way to the top of the amateur boxing world. It records, with amazing completeness and verity, the actual ring contests of the 1938 Golden Gloves championship fights. Taking up the story at the bottom of the ladder, Dr. Clifford Decker pictures the long grind of training, the whirl of preliminary elimination fights, the trip of a local picked team to New York for the semi finals and the eventual rise of a Binghamton boy to the Eastern championship after a victory in Madison Square Garden. A sizable accomplishment, this film is more than a mere record. The producer has added imagination and has built up a significant continuity with stirring crises. Although the vast bulk of material, necessary to make the document complete, rather overbalances the film and detracts from its pure motion picture value, The Glory Road is an extraordinary picture." Movie Makers, Dec. 1938, 618-619.

Olympionic is another successful film by Rose and Stuart Dabbs of the Bronx. Naturally it's in color, and it is only 4 minutes long. The film is an excellent example of creativity, experimentation and what have you. It's all put together neatly. Here's your chance to see a film twice, three times and even as many as twenty times all in one screening. The gracefulness of the film is really a work of art.
