Humphrey Bogart plays a 1920s gunrunnner operating in Syria and supplying weapons to the rebel forces. His wits are keenly matched by a French intelligence officer - his constant spy and judge. As with any good Bogart classic, romance is controlled and kept on the sidelines of dramatic intrigue as the civil war rages.
Humphrey Bogart stars in one of his most memorable performances as Eddie Willis, a sportswriter who joins forces with a corrupt boxing promoter named Benko.
Together, they scheme to deceive Toro Moreno, a clumsy, seven-foot giant, and the public into believing Moreno has a shot at the heavyweight title.

Jersey Joe Walcott appears as Moreno's trainer, with former boxing great Max Baer as the heavyweight champ. The Harder They Fall is an intriguing film in the tradition of Bogart classics.
