Flesh is a 1932 black-and-white drama film directed by John Ford (uncredited) and starring Wallace Beery as a German wrestler. Some of the script was written by Moss Hart and an uncredited William Faulkner.




  • In the Coen brothers' film Barton Fink, (1991), the title character deals with writers' block while attempting to write a screenplay for a Wallace Beery wrestling picture. At the time they wrote it, the Coens were unaware of this movie. In addition, Barton Fink features a character based somewhat on William Faulkner that Fink consults for help in writing the script.[1]
