Early Bird, The (1965)

With the dairy he works for threatened with closing after a large company (Consolidated Dairies) moves onto their turf, lone milkman Norman Pitkin (Wisdom) decides to take matters into his own hands, sabotaging the corporation head’s garden and golf game.

Meanwhile, rival milkman Austin (Bryan Pringle) employs dirty tactics to take Norman’s customers for Consolidated.

Funny slapstick permeates this Wisdom outing, his first colour effort.
