Midge Kelly

Midge Kelly
For the amount of boxers that have been in cinema, they almost always had a heart of gold buried beneath their rough exterior. That wouldn’t be found in Kirk Douglas’ Midge Kelly in “Champion”, a faux hero in public, though a man with limited scruples outside of it. Douglas, who looked more like a boxer than virtually any other actor at that point, and is a great character study regardless of the genre. This should be a legitimate candidate for this hall, unless you go on likability and then this man has no shot!  

The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
Champion (1949)

Kirk Douglas

Role Portrayed:

Why You Should Vote For Him:
Douglas was great (Nominated for an Oscar), and looked like a boxer more than anyone else who donned the gloves in this era.

Why You Should Not Vote For Him:
If you are looking for a hero, you won’t find it here.
