Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Canadian Brutal Glory is based on a true story. Set in World War I-era New York City, the film stars Timothy Brantley as a boxing champ named Kid McCoy, aka "The Real McCoy". Ambitious to the point of ruthlessness, McCoy will mash anyone flat-inside and outside the ring-to get ahead. The era is superbly recaptured, as are the grimy working conditions in the fight game of the era. The supporting cast include Robert Vaughn (in yet another untrustworthy characterization) and Leah Pinsent.
