Don't Rock the Boat
3 April 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

When the star rower for Rawley University gets drafted, resourceful Frankie Darro (as Frankie Monahan) and student pal Jackie Moran (as Tad) hire husky Frank Sully (as Hercules "Herk" Bevans) to pose as the absent boatman. The plan backfires when Mr. Sully romances his new friends' cute college girlfriends, Gale Storm (as Midge Lawrence) and Marcia Mae Jones (as Bess Martin). Listen for Ms. Storm to sing "Look What You've Done to Me", sidekick Keye Luke (as Buck Wing) to add a little Chinese philosophy, and servile Mantan Moreland (as Jeff) to sing the line "Is you callin' a spade a spade?"
