Boxing Wednesdays. Wrestling on Fridays. Stoker Thompson is on Paradise Citys Wednesday card, fighting after the main event. Hes been 20 years in the game and is sure hes just one punch away from big paydays. But theres one thing Stoker doesnt yet know: his manager wants him to take a dive tonight. The Set-Up comes out swinging as one of the great films about the so-called sweet science. Robert Wise directs, shaping real-time events into an acclaimed and unsparing film-noir look at the stale-air venues, bloodthirsty fans, ring savagery and delusional dreams of boxings palooka world. Robert Ryan embraces perhaps his fi nest screen hour as Stoker. Audrey Totter, an icon of the noir genre like Ryan, plays Stokers steadfast wife. In a sport that would take their last flicker of dignity, the Thompsons are reclaiming theirs.
