Battle of the Sexes comedy.
2 February 2014 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am inserting a review for all films I've seen that so far lack one, my 'review' such as it is follows... 'Battle of the sexes comedy on the high seas, starring C.Drake.' Not the most useful I admit, I saw the film on BBC1 19 Jun 1977, in the UK, I have no recollection of it so can't add to my review, I can say that I am a fan of under-rated largely forgotten director D.MacDonald, and that C.Drake was better known as a TV than film comedian in the UK. Also note this has just been released on DVD in the UK by Network, so hopefully a more enlightening review will not be long in coming. Need to fill review too short, check out THE BROTHERS (1947) as a good D.MacDonald film.
