Funny exotic treasure from Disney
21 February 2002 | by (Southern CA) – See all my reviews

Nancy Kwan should have been a comedienne, but proves that she can hold her own with Dick Van Dyke. I'm surprised Disney hasn't put this out on DVD. When it first came out in 1966, it was one of the top 5 movies of the year. And should be: Dick Van Dyke is in top form (even does a Mary Poppins-schtick at the end) and Nancy Kwan is just adorable, funny, and can mesmerize you with just a quick rise of her eyebrow. Watch it and enjoy.
