Somebody Up There Likes Me

Somebody Up There Likes Me    Somebody Up There Likes Me is a 1956 drama film based on the life of middleweight boxing legend Rocky Graziano.

In Manhattan's Lower East Side, young Rocky Barbella is abused by his alcoholic father, ex-boxer Nick Barbella. Running from his home life, Rocky begins a career of robbery and petty crime, which continues into his teens, when the local church protectory finally refuses to grant him asylum from the juvenile detention system.

The role of Rocky Graziano was originally to be played by James Dean, but he died before filming began, and Paul Newman was asked to take the part.
