Indie production of great historical and social interest about the struggles of Latinos in East Los Angeles in the early Fifties. The film is part film-noir with its great, vivid LA settings and sometimes shadowy black and white camerawork -- by the accomplished Russell Harlan -- and features among its strengths the presence of lovely young Rita Moreno. It's another of the many boxing movies of the era, but has the extra weight of looking at problems of ethnic bigotry within the larger society.
Director Kurt Neumann is probably best known as the director of Fifties sci-fi movies, but this one shows his touch with humane material.

Based on the 1953 novel "The Square Trap" by Irving Shulman. According to Wikipedia: "The Ring is one of the first Hollywood films in which discrimination against Mexicans and Chicanos are presented, including prejudice against young people ("Pachucos")..."
