Some Blondes are Dangerous is a remake of 1931's The Iron Man, using the same W. R. Burnett novel as its source. Noah Beery Jr. stars as Bud "Iron Man" Mason, a talented but rather dimwitted prizefighter. Against the advice of his crusty old manager George Regan (William Gargan), Mason dumps his ever-loving girlfriend Judy Williams (Nan Grey) in favor of sexy blonde chorine Rose Whitney (Dorothea Kent in a rare unsympathetic role). Immediately after his marriage to the selfish Rose, Mason's ring career goes right into the dumpster. Upon finding on that Rose has been "carrying on" behind his back, Mason gives her the ozone, but by now he's so out of shape that his pugilistic career is over. With the help of faithful Judy, Mason finally realizes that there's more to life than boxing and blondes. Some Blondes are Dangerous was refilmed under the property's original title The Iron Man in 1951.
