Enjoyable little comedy
19 February 2002 | by (Ky.) – See all my reviews

James Dunn's flair for comedy, and Sally Eilers' sexiness, added spark to this old Fox comedy. The older Fox films, before the merger with Twentieth Century Pictures, have not been as well preserved, vis a via say, MGM or Warner Brothers. I hope "Sailor's Luck" still survives.
