Description by OLDIES.com:
Harold Lloyd, comic genius of both the sound and silent era, plays sly, nebbishy milkman Burleigh Sullivan in Leo McCarey's whirlwind farce, The Milky Way.
Hapless but cunning Burleigh accidentally knocks out the middle weight champ and trades his milk truck for sparring gloves as the press jump on the story of this unlikely prizefighter. Despite gaining a reputation so tough that many contenders are afraid to fight him, Berleigh still has time to fall in love with a good girl who is critical of the cynical, fame-mad glutton he has become. However, giving up the ring for love isn't as easy as it seems, because with each triumph, needy orphans receive milk from his former employer-turned-sponsor. Berleigh's comic crisis of character comes to a climax in a wickedly funny finale.
Burleigh Sullivan is a wimpy, harmless milkman whose life is transformed after he accidentally KOs a boxing champ and gets signed by a nefarious fight promoter.
