Did You Know?

Famed playwright Tennessee Williams directed the majority of the film. Credited director James L. Wolcott was a close friend of Williams, and when Tennessee asked for the pleasure of directing, he was allowed to do so for the fun of the experience.See more »

Well, if this movie was a puppy ..., 24 December 2006
Author: Kenneth Eagle Spirit from United States

Ever see a puppy that was so ugly it was cute? That describes this dog of a movie. Gilligan's Island meets Ed Wood gone terribly wrong. Plot? It never thickens. Rather it starts out as thin as rice paper and remains just that transparent. Dialog? The dialog coach was sent out for coffee. Acting? It is to laugh. Sets? Well, none really. Special effects? Uh, there was that rubber alligator. Makeup? Think: Blue hair meant to look grey. But hey, it IS in colour. Maybe they should of thought about that before they called for makeup. Reality? This movie is a cinema dog rocket. But if you can get into Ed Wood meets Gilligan ... It IS kinda cute and good for a chuckle or two. But not much else.
