An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie One-sheet (Learn More)

Fighting Blood, the 1924 Al Santell silent sports boxing comedy series ("It's a knockout"; "H.C. Witwer's famous Collier's Weekly Stories"; "It's an F.B.O. picture") starring George O'Hara, ("and all star cast") Kit Guard, Al Cooke, Clara Horton, Mabel Van Buren, and Clark Gable (in one of his 14 uncredited roles prior to making his real debut in 1931's "The Painted Desert"). Note that this was one of a series of boxing films with the same characters, and each new film in the series was called a "round" (appropriate for a series of boxing movies!), but these movies were not serials, just connected by having the same characters. Note that the IMDb lists the director of this movie as Malcolm St. Clair, but the one-sheet for this serial clearly identifies the director as Al Santell, so it is just one more case of the IMDb having incorrect information! Also note that this poster shows a Pit Bull dog that has a circle around one eye, which is exactly what became Pete the Pup's trademark in the "Our Gang" films, but his first appearance in an "Our Gang" film was not until 1925, so either this is just a coincidence, or perhaps Hal Roach got the idea from this earlier dog. Also note that H.C. Witwer is virtually forgotten today, but in his time (the 1920s), he was perhaps America's foremost short story writer of stories dealing with sports, and he published over 400 stories in his lifetime, which was not a long life, because he sadly died in 1929 from liver failure, and surely would have written a great many more stories had he lived longer (he was just 39 when he died). Many of his stories were adapted into films, including "The Leather Pushers" series of boxing movies, and the "Racing Blood" series of horse racing movies, among many others. In 1929, he sued Harold Lloyd for plagiarism of one of his short stories in Lloyd's "The Freshman", and he died during the trial, but his wife continued the lawsuit after his death, and she was awarded $2.3 million (in 1929 dollars!), but the judgement was overturned, and she received nothing. Witwer produced some of the movies made from his stories, and it is sad that he is so completely forgotten.
