The movie was preceded by an innovative drumming/percussion/tap duo on stage. Upstairs was a cash bar and free snacks from Los Balcones Del Peru. Gilbert A Smith, the son-in-law of Ricardo Montalban, mingled with attendees. The only drawback was that the glorious Technicolor MGM movie "On An Island With You" was DVD projected. The area has a ton of restaurants and the best option is to take the Red Line subway to Hollywood and Vine, only a block and a half from the Montalban. For a separate $15 admission you can dance on the rooftop to Groove3.

Prizefighter Johnny (Ricardo Montalbán) is in love with his promoter O’Malley’s daughter Pat. His best friend, sports reporter Rick, is also in love with her but knows that she loves Johnny. Lonely Rick takes up drinking and women (including Marilyn Monroe in nightclub bit part). Johnny knows his right hand is going bad and has to work fast to make real money.
