The film will be introduced by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson (“Sneakers,” “Field of Dreams”).

Polonsky received an Academy Award® nomination for Original Screenplay for the film, and John Garfield earned a Best Actor nomination for his powerful performance as a boxer embroiled in a battle with a crooked promoter. Francis Lyon and Robert Parrish won the Oscar for Film Editing for “Body and Soul.”
