Storyline

With posters featuring a stylized-drawing of Eva Six in a bikini, a tagline reading..."Temptation in Paradise...neither hell nor high heels could stop them", and a Dream Sequence Technical Adviser credit for Bob Marcucci, American-International once again proved it had no peers when it came to sleight-of-hand advertising selling a war-movie when war movies weren't selling. This one starts in the Pacific in 1943 when an American submarine staffed by the likes of Scott Brady, Jim Backus and Michael Dante (the old guns to get the old folks in) has a rendezvous with a cruiser to pick up an underwater demolition team comprised of the likes of Tab Hunter, Frankie Avalon, Gary Crosby and Jody McCrea (the young turks to get the kids in, which probably only worked in Southern California), and there is conflict right off as the sub crew feels like they are being denied a chance to revenge the sinking of a sister sub because they have to deliver Tab and Frankie to an island on a super-secret ...

This movie has Ed Wood written all over it
17 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love awful movies, and this is one of the most bizarre, awful movies I've seen in awhile. And to think it was set during WW II, the one we won. The director must have been an Ed Wood devotee because the sets are cheesy, the acting is over the top, there's lots of stock footage, and everyone is taking the whole thing very seriously. I was waiting for the overlay of Bela Lugosi and stampeding buffalo. Tab Hunter is very manly, Frankie Avalon has repeated Wizard of Oz style dream sequences where he sings about his girl "with the apple pie eyes", and Jim Backus is always telling everyone to get some sleep. I love this movie and I want to add it to my collection!
