Born in Brooklyn in 1907, Barbara Stanwyck was a Hollywood superstar for over six decades. And now one of her greatest films, the classic Golden Boy, comes to DVD! Newcomer William Holden became an overnight sensation in the role of a young violinist who turns to boxing and finds himself torn between his two occupations - especially when seductive Stanwyck slinks into his life. Based on the hit play by legendary Clifford Odets, directed by innovative genius Rouben Mamoulian, and featuring a superb supporting cast including Adolphe Menjou (Paths Of Glory), Lee J. Cobb (On The WaterfrontTouch Of Evil) and Sam Levene (Brute Force), Golden Boy packs just as big a punch today as it did when it came out in 1939, widely considered the greatest movie year ever.
