Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Short - even by B-movie standards - this is a slight comedy from the days of double-bills when a second feature could be brief. June Thorburn and Marla Landi play Pat and Terry, two models who get more than they bargained for when they set up home on a barge. Unbeknown to them a jewel thief has hidden his ill-gotten gains on board and is determined to get the goods back at all cost. Much comic mayhem follows. Utterly typical fare of the time, with no ambition to be anything else.
