Smitten by Polly Martin (Virginia Mayo), milkman Burleigh Sullivan (Danny Kaye) promises that his sister, Susie (Vera-Ellen), can get Polly a job at the club she owns. That night, Burleigh interrupts two men accosting Susie in the alley and apparently knocks them both out. When the men are discovered to be middleweight boxing champion Speed MacFarlane (Steve Cochran) and his coach, Speed's manager (Walter Abel) convinces Burleigh to take up boxing. Hoping to impress Polly, Burleigh agrees.

Audience Reviews for The Kid From Brooklyn

  • Nov 23, 2014
    Cute, silly very lightweight comic musical with Kaye antic as ever and an amazing array of wonderful supporting actesses. Eve Arden is acerbic and terrifically droll, Vera-Ellen youthful, fresh and she dances like a dream, Fay Bainter all fractured dignity and Virginia Mayo, at the height of her beauty, sweet and charming.

    I remeber this as a kid and I loved it. Kaye was a genious and will be missed.

    Remake of "The Milky Way" is lots of fun thanks to Kaye.
