A 1940's Gilligan's Island
9 March 1999 | by (boston, ma) – See all my reviews

A couple of bozos get in trouble with Nazis on a south sea island. Margie Hart

(an exotic dancer of the day) is ultra campy -- dig those lips and the deadpan delivery! Lots of fun burlesque-style dialogue. Kind of a '40's "Gilligan's Island," but with sexual tension. Gale Storm, adorable... "Hawaiian" music and dancing.
