The Guy Who Came Back - 1951 - 5/10

Ex-football hero is now middle aged, washed up, feeling unwanted.
During World War II the services would not even have him due to injuries.
The first half, borderline soap opera is so much household melodrama.
Things do perk up with a female promoter (Linda Darnell) where he attempts nonsense.
Will there be a big football fame at the end?
Will an aging, overweight ex-star perform wonders?
As a kid, I loved this film. Now, Hollywood schlock.
