Editorial Reviews

Boxer Teddy Wilcox (Robert Blake) leaves his manager and relocates. He finds Nick, a manager/trainer. Before Wilcox's first fight, Nick receives a threat-- Wilcox loses, or Nick will die. Despite Nick's efforts to sabotage the fight, Wilcox wins. Enraged, Wilcox orders Nick to keep away from him. Later that night, Nick is murdered. Of course, Wilcox is the primary suspect. Wilcox then tries to clear his name and find Nick's killer.

3.0 out of 5 stars "...otto... nove... dieci... siete fuori!" September 18, 2009
Format:VHS Tape
ANCHOR BAY VHS tapes are usually recorded at slower tape speeds. Transfers still look decent and track stably in this reviewer's VCR.

Original Italian name of RIPPED OFF (Un uomo dalla pelle dura) translates as: "Tough-skinned Man."
"Murder in the Ring" is an alternate U.S. title.

The US print of this picture has typically bad voice dubbing and is choppily edited down to well under-90 minutes running time.

Former welterweight boxer Joe Louis Murphy appears. In Murphy's journeyman career he amassed a 13 - 11 record from 1955 to '66.

Fight manager Nick da Catarina (Ferzetti) receives threats from mobsters that his "boy" Teddy 'Cherokee' Wilcox (Blake) had better lose this upcoming fight-- or else. Cherokee refuses to "lay down." He wins the bout and Nick ends up dead. Police Captain Perkins (Borgnine) tries to prove that the boxer murdered his manager.

"Ripped Off" is available on DVD.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 viewer poll rating found at a film resource website.
