Ace of Aces

In this action comedy the French boxer Jo Cavalier is charmed on the train to Berlin for  the Olympics in Hitler’s Germany by the little boy Simon Rosenblum who asks his autograph; when  it turns out his adorable young fan is a Jewish orphan in danger of persecution, he risks his one  shot at Olympic glory to save Simon and his family, helped only by a German officer-gentleman who became his friend in World War I, by an adventurous escape to Switzerland, Nazi troops on their heals and braving impossible odds in roller coaster-style.
