Treat 'Em Rough is a 1942 film about a boxer directed by Ray Taylor and starring Eddie Albert.


Bill Kingsford, a prizefighter called the Panama Kid (Eddie Albert), returns to his hometown with his trainer Hotfoot (William Frawley (who later played "Fred Mertz" on I Love Lucy) and valet Snake Eyes (Mantan Moreland) when his father (Lloyd Corrigan) is accused of embezzling.

Bill becomes involved with his father's ravishing secretary (Peggy Moran), who tips him off that she overheard a couple men planning to ambush Bill while he investigates his father's scandal. When one of those men is killed, police mistake the dead body's for Bill. He uses the time to solve the mystery and clear his dad's name.
