In the wrestling ring, Polakai is a colossus of muscle, sinew and sweat. At home with the tough-cookie ex-con he’s married and saved from the streets, he is a gentle giant. But his kindness is not enough to stop his wife from pursuing an illicit affair that topples Polakai into professional and personal ruin. Legendary director John Ford brings his clean, visually poetic style to Flesh, guiding Wallace Beery (in the year of his Best Actor Oscar® win* for The Champ) and Karen Morley (Scarface) to some of the finest work of their careers. As touching as it is uncompromising, Flesh takes its characters to the dark regions of their souls…and ends with a quiet, unforgettable scene that offers a hope for redemption.
