Just another average outing
28 April 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Drummond stumbles onto a kidnapping and brings his friends to Morocco in search of his missing friend and to put a stop to baddies. Like the last Drummond film I saw starring John Howard, this one is over in less than an hour.

Here we are again. Drummond, as usual, is on his way to marry his fiancée, Algie is coming along for no particularly good reason and Drummond's manservant is along for a few laughs. The usual formula is definitely intact here. And as a result, there are few surprises but it is still campy fun and worth a look for fans of B-movies. I'd say more about the film, but frankly it was so ordinary (like eating toast actually) that I think I am done.

By the way, in a relatively small role is a very young and not yet famous Anthony Quinn.
