Body and Soul is a 1947 American film noir directed by Robert Rossen, and features John Garfield, Lilli Palmer, Hazel Brooks, Anne Revere and William Conrad. The film, written by Abraham Polonsky, is considered the first great film about boxing; it's also a cautionary tale about the lure of money—and how it can derail even a strong common man in his pursuit of success.
