The Story of an Aging Boxer and his Tragic Decline

The legendary creator of the Twilight Zone originally wrote this script as a teleplay for the ground-breaking television series Playhouse 90.

Harlan "Mountain" McClintock, a once-promising but now washed-up boxer, burned out after years in the ring, faces the end of his career after he is savagely defeated by a younger boxer.

McClintock is a trusting soul, and despite betrayal and humiliation by his conniving manager, he regains his damaged pride and self respect with the help of a young social worker.
