This slow moving train wreck was produced and directed by the star, Jerry Lewis. No one else would touch it.
Lewis plays an accountancy clerk who catches a sea diver when fishing on the coast. The diver is a diamond thief and gives Lewis a map. The diver's confederates, who he has cheated, plan to assassinate him and get the map. Then follows a dull series of slow pratfalls.
Lewis stays at the Hilton while searching for the diamonds. How he can afford to is not shown (he's only an accountancy clerk remember).
One of the confederates is a Japanese who runs a "racket" selling plastic inserts in oysters as pearls although in fact this is how manufactured pearls are made.
Lewis never finds the diamonds. The strong violence make it unsuitable for the most undemanding of children.
Product placement Pepsi Cola.
