The World of "Mountain" Riviera . . . The Fast Buck . . . The Angry Men . . . The Lonely Women !

Mountain Rivera is at the end of his boxing career after a knockout by Cassius Clay in the seventh round. His left eye is one punch from permanent trauma, his ears turned to cauliflower, his speech slurred from "being hit a million times", and he slings punches anytime he hears a bell His trainer and 'cutman' Army, and Miss Miller, a manipulative social worker, support his illusion that he could be a movie usher, a camp counselor—or a romantic partner for Miller.
