Quirt and Flagg return for yet another go around. This time they're mustered out of the marines. Flagg becomes a speakeasy magnate, Quirt cons him and others out of money and the two of them have a series of go-arounds in which McLaglen constantly threatens Lowe like Ralph Kramden threatening Alice. and Lowe comes up with another tired-sounding wisecrack -- not quite that bad, but they provide very little comic energy and that little is sapped by El Brendel, the unfunniest comedian before Paulie Shore.
Then enters Lupe Velez, and she is funny, energetic and beautiful. And she makes this movie move, to the extent that it does, both in terms of plot and comedy. Miss Velez's career in American pictures should have been killed by the talkies, but she was too great a comedienne to let it stop her. Alas, she killed herself in the early 1940s. But she does save this picture.
