Deception (1932 film)
Deception is a 1932 American Pre-Code sports drama centering on crooked fight promoter Jim Hurley (Leo Carrillo) and naive former football player Bucky O'Neill (Nat Pendleton) whom he dupes into becoming an untrained wrestler in fixed bouts. When Hurley's girlfriend Lola Del Mont (Thelma Todd) becomes romantically attracted to O'Neill, Hurley fixes his next match for wrestler Ivan Stanislaus (Hans Steinke) to win. O'Neill plots his revenge during the next year as he secretly goes through rigorous wrestling training in another location. He returns disguised in a costume stolen from another wrestler, and Hurley orders him killed when he discovers his identity.
