A con man (Robert Preston) enlists a drunk writer (Tony Randal) to write a fictitious screen play to be funded by a rich but unethical mobster producer. The plot is the story of Adam and Eve in Genesis in the Bible. The plot is to defraud the mobster of his bankroll. Written by
Great cast but the story is just stupid. Robert Preston is too old for his role and Tony Randall is wasted. Walter Matthau's accent is all over the place and he seems uncomfortable playing some idiot gangster. The movie is interesting as it is filmed on location in Greece before it was spoilt by mass tourism.
