This film isn't the greatest film ever made but one of the funniest for it's time. Bing Crosby plays a sailor aboard the yacht of Doris Worthington, a wealthy heiress played by the legendary Carole Lombard. Ethel Merman has a supporting role as friend and one of the other stranded passengers. Then there's a bear named Droopy that should have been credited on it's own. Bing and the Bear should have been the act's title. Bing sings a particular song to the bear to calm him down. Can't miss a bear on roller skates on the yacht! It must be seen to be appreciated for it's slapstick humor. The best is yet to come when they are stranded on an uninhabited island with George Burns and Gracie Allen. You can't not love Gracie Allen in this film as the dim-witted wife. You could see why and how much they loved each other. They were the perfect comedic pair on screen and off screen as well. It's an entertaining film.
