Milky Way (1936) - B&W - 89 min

The Milky Way is very hilarious Harold Lloyd vehicle - he stars as Burleigh Sullivan, a quiet, unassuming milk man for the Sunflower Dairy. When he hears his sister calling for help late one night - he comes to her aid - and ends up in the newspapers because everyone thinks the middleweight champ was decked by the milk man! While not a great fighter, Burleigh is a remarkable ducker of punches, having been assaulted frequently as a young kid. Lots of funny twists and turns - and great fun!
