I don't know why it took so long to see it, but finally saw "Cinderella Man" today. What an inspiring story, hopefully it was a true portrayal of events. I looked his history up only because it reminded me of times with my father in the sixties, watching Frazier and Clay(Ali) fight, and Dad would mention how he always admired James Braddock, as they both served WWII in the South Pacific. He said that he argued with many fellow sailors about who was the best fighter and he always bragged up Mr. Braddock. They were both big, tough working stiffs who served their Nation and raised fine families. It was good to at last see the story of this great man's life and along the way refresh some fond memories of my own. Thank you for this great site.

What a great story and tribute to a true champion and heroic american. Boxing has always been one of my favorite sports because of people like Jim Braddock. I'm glad his grandchildren have kept this website and his story alive. Regards!

Every time I hear or see the story of James Broddock it sends a chill threw me. Men like him are truly the foundation of which I live my life by. Cheers to you Mr. Broddock and The Greatest Generation, for it it not for them who knows what life would be like today.

My Mom grew up in North Bergen and West New York, NO. I visited there many times until I married and moved at 20. My husband's Great Aunt still owed a deli in West New York, so we would go visit every time we went home. I love the story of James J. Braddock. A true hero, the type this country was founded upon. Next time I visit Jersey, I will stop by his resting place and pay my respect to a wonderful human being.

What an inspirational story. These are the kind of people that should be held up as heroes. Not the type of people we hold up today. What a great example as a Christian and a human being. God bless you and your family.

I just had to write and tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed the movie, and what an inspiration it is to men all over the world. The greatest thing portrayed was the integrity of James and how he was appreciative of what was done for him, enough that he paid it back. He showed what it is to be a man of character, a devoted husband and father and friend. God bless you family!

It is really inspiring to see the movie about James J. Braddock´s live. Not only due to his skills as a boxer, but also in the role of a man, father and husband in difficult times . A lesson of values and courage!!!

I had no idea this movie would be as good as it is. It had me hooked from start to finish, and like a good book, it holds up under repeated viewings. James Braddock was a real man and a true fighter...totally unlilke some of these namby-pamby pretty boy boxers we have today.

An "AMAZING MAN" !!!! Where Pride met Power and a man proved, Defeat is only the Opprotunity to pick yourself up and Prove your True Abilities!

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this entire movie. James J. Braddock showed us a lot of things in this movie, but to me one of the most important things he provided us is a 101 on how to be a real man. Not only how to be man to your woman, but also how to live your life with passion and purpose. Thank you James and everyone who shared his story.
