Great entertainment for the entire family!
31 August 2003 | by (Deep South, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Miss Lamour's last "monkey flicks"...and really one of the best. Richard Denning never looked better. Great music and photography. Just plain good entertainment. It's a shame Paramount does not release this on DVD.
