Billy Sullivan, a nephew of turn-of-the-century boxing champ John L. Sullivan, starred in this low-budget prize-fight melodrama as Billy Brookes, a boxer whose spendthrift wife Phyliss (Virginia Brown Faire) considers him a loser. But when Phyliss is severely injured in an automobile accident and requires expensive surgery, Billy throws caution to the wind and wins the Big Fight. Recovering, Phyliss finally sees her husband in a heroic light and they agree to begin a new life together. A beauty contest winner, Virginia Brown Faire is perhaps best remembered today for having played Tinger Bell in Peter Pan (1924).
