Gentleman Joe Palooka

Gentleman Joe Palooka is a 1946 film directed by Cy Endfield. It was the second of the long-running Joe Palooka series.


The prizefighter Joe Palooka's popularity soars after his manager, Knobby Walsh, explains to reporters how "clean living" is responsible for Joe's success. The public is pleased with a hero who believes in drinking milk.

Joe's rich and unscrupulous Uncle Charlie sees a way to capitalize on Joe's good fortune. He schemes to make a land purchase, trading on Joe's good name, then blackmails Joe and Knobby once they figure out how they're being used. Joe's sweetheart Anne Howe tries to intervene as a legislative investigation of the land swindle begins, and Joe outfoxes thugs employed by Charlie to get to the hearings just in time and clear his name.
