12 February 2003 | by (austin) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie, A moral piece, with delectable Esther Williams, smoking Jeff, The classy rich good looking educated spoiled rich boy, A Drop out in life to find out his truth. Exploding into his world of escape all that he had ran from to the ends of the earth "The beautiful born poor model about to hook an easy life" The dilemma that befalls both he and she, go with your heart, flow with your passion. Follow the buck. This might have been a B movie; it might had been made on a shoestring budget. I found that on sight poverty wild style of living only enhanced the story line, It branded me "this" movie into my mind for all time. I saw it the first time over thirty years ago, and I still remember it with a smile. A very good movie, only for the steak movie consumer of moral/lust/love/ with a seasoning of ironic twist at the end. I really loved it can't you tell!!!!!
