Trivia

In the original credits, Panama City is generically referred to as Central America, the exception of naming the locations by the port city's name. See more »

Goofs

Spike Madden consults his little black addresses book at each port, and we see close-ups of the pages with names, addresses and notes. When he crosses out Maria Buenjolla's name, the page is as large as his pencil-holding hand, out of proportion to the pocket book seen earlier. By WesternOne. See more »

Typical buddy movie (almost gay by modern standards)
21 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason this fllm seems to garner attention is due to Louise Brooks in the final segment. She is attractive enough but displaying little dramatic talent, just a show piece that any woman, actress or not, could have provided the film makers.

I am among those who just 'don't get" Louise Brooks, and I guess I will die unchanged. Nothing special at all in my book. She just had a "look," but no talent.

A buddy movie, that could be termed gay "but without any sex," just camaraderie devoid of the influence of the female.
