She can't act, but she can sure snap her fingers.
29 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Any film that features Sabu singing "Polly Wolly Doodle" is a camp classic in my book, and when you add in the exotic Maria Montez in, you've got enough camp to keep Yogi and Boo Boo overloaded in picnic baskets. Then, when he sings "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" in a crooner's voice with a bit of Crosby parade (straight out of the "hit procession", as he calls it), that does it. The ball is in his court, and I give him the game.

Unfortunately, the remainder of the film is a dreadful bore, an action/mystery with no action and no mystery. It is a snail of a film dealing with the attempts of Montez and Robert Paige to find a Nazi in hiding with stolen jewels to avoid capture. Preston Foster is ridiculously miscast as a Hispanic official, but Louise Albritton gets a few good scenes as Montez's companion. There's a surprisingly grizzly finale, but other than the adorable Sabu, the rest of the film is a dreadful bore.
