The Prizefighter and the Lady was originally release prior to implementation of the Hays Code. The print that is telecast on Turner Classic Movies bears the Production Code Seal #1303-R, which is evidence it’s the late 1930s re-release, and so may have been cleaned up from the pre-code 1933 original, which may, or may not still exist.
