Summary: In the middle of the Great Depression, when an America in the grips of a devastating economic downturn was nearly brought to its knees, there came along a most unlikely hero who had crowds cheering on their feet as he proved just how hard a man would fight to win a second chance for his family and himself. That common-man hero was James J. Braddock, a.k.a. the "Cinderella Man"-who was to become one of the most surprising and inspirational sports legends in history. (Universal Pictures)
