Knock yourself out with two Golden Age boxing films together in one double feature disc! "The Milky Way" (1936) follows milkman Buleigh (Harold Lloyd) who knocks out a middleweight champ in a street brawl and inadvertently becomes a real boxer. Trouble comes when he's courted by a manager who wants him to compete in a series of fixed fights, only the unaware Buleigh has now started to believe in his own potential. Can he survive in the ring when the the outcome isn't rigged? In "Kid Dynamite" (1943), East Side champ Muggs McCinnis (Leo Gorcey) is kidnapped before he can settle a score, so his friend Danny takes his place and wins the fight. Muggs winds up thinking that Danny was responsible with his kidnapping, which sucker-punches Danny's dream to marry Muggs's sister. Will Muggs learn the truth or continue to resent Danny forever?
