Requiem for a Heavyweight 1962

Requiem for a Heavyweight ★★★ Blood Money1962

After 17 years, Mountain Rivera (Quinn) is a washed-up heavyweight risk- ing his life if he continues boxing. He tries to find another job but his manager, Maish Rennick (Gleason), owes the mob big, and persuades the fighter to help him pay off his debts by joining the wrestling cir- cuit, so Mountain humiliates himself to help out his old friend. The 1956 TV ver- sion is still more compelling but the film's performances are all first-rate. 100m/B VHS, DVD . Anthony Quinn, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney, Julie Harris, Stanley Adams, Spivy Levoe, Muhammad Ali, Jack Dempsey; D: Ralph Nelson; W: Rod Serling; C: Arthur Ornitz; M: Laurence Rosenthal.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
