This two-reel fight film is a condensation of the Joe Louis-Bob Pastor heavyweight championship bout at Detroit Stadium. The fight took place on September 20th, and the film was out of the soup and ready for theatrical distribution five days later. After 10 grueling rounds, Pastor went down for the count in the 11th, courtesy of Louis' powerful right hook. So as not to miss any vital action, producer Jack Dietz used two cameras to cover the action, anticipating TV techniques by nearly ten years. The Louis-Pastor Fight was released hot on the heels of the 2-reel version of Tony Galento-Lou Nova bout in Philadelphia; both films cleaned up at the box-office.
