Flesh and Blood | 1979
Young street-tough-turned-boxer struggles to reach the top while finding his romance with an attractive TV reporter is complicated by an incestuous relationship with his mother. This was Berenger's first important television role and offered a surprising change of pace for Pleshette in her being cast as his mother. John Cassavetes, as the dedicated fight manager, received an Emmy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actor. Somehow overlooked was ace cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond's contribution.
