Silent-film comedian Harold Lloyd had his biggest success
in talkies with this trifle about a timid milkman who inadvertently becomes a
middleweight champion. "The Milky Way" is the first of many movies on this list
involving fixed fights. Boxing is full ... more of heroic athletes, but the nagging
suspicion of a predetermined outcome has always deterred audiences from the
sport. It makes for high drama on-screen, though. Look for "Zorba" and "Lawrence
of Arabia" star Anthony Quinn making his acting debut
as an extra.
