Killer McCoy - Ann Teams with Mickey Rooney


Killer McCoy (1947) proved to be something of a comeback for Mickey Rooney, having returned from the service after the war, and for Ann Blyth, just getting the momentum of her career moving again in the period after her disastrous accident in which she had fractured her spine.

It's an MGM picture, and though a boxing story, we can see the MGM gloss in the beautiful cinematography, especially the glamorous treatment Ann Blyth receives.  For more on Killer McCoy, have a look here at my Another Old Movie Blog.

Turner Classic Movies is showing Killer McCoy on this coming Tuesday, November 22nd, at 9 a.m. Eastern Time.
