Maish Rennick

Maish Rennick
For many, Jackie Gleason could do no wrong, and like so many great comedians, he could tap into a dark place to generate dramatic performances that make you forget how funny he could be. Here, Gleason is Maish Rennick, the degenerate boxing manager of “Mountain” Rivera, who lost a sizable sum of money wagering when his client lost to a young Cassius Clay. That wasn’t the entire part of the story as we would later learn, but his moral compass is clearly skewed, but as a character you can’t help but be compelled by what is on the screen in front of you.

The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962)

Jackie Gleason

Role Portrayed:
Boxing Manager

Why You Should Vote For Him:
Gleason was great here, but wasn’t he always?

Why You Should Not Vote For Him:
For the amount of contenders available for the Veteran’s Category, perhaps just being a manager here is not enough to get selected.
