The Boxer
It was "tax shelter" time when Hollywood's Robert Blake and Ernest Borgnine headed to Italy to star in Counter Punch. Slimmer and lighter on his feet than he'd be in his Baretta days, Blake plays a young boxer, accused of murdering his crooked manager. Escaping from detective Borgnine, Blake sets about to uncover the real killer on his own. Expect a lot of heavy duty fisticuffs, with Blake doing most of his own stunt work. Adding spice to the proceedings are distaff co-stars Gabrielle Ferzetti and Catherine Spaak, the latter cast as the murder victim's daughter. Originally titled Un Uomo dalla Pelle Dura, Counter Punch was also released as Ripped-Off. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
