An airplane crashes in an uncharted Pacific island, south of Tahiti. Three men survive, and one gets in love with a beautiful native girl. She is the the daughter of the tribe's leader, who may inherit the throne after the tragic death of her brother, and she is as savage as her pet leopard. The other men prefer to think about how to rob the tribe's gold treasure.
The film has a plethora of television stars of the time including Shirley Jones (The Partridge Family), Brandon Cruz (The Courtship of Eddie's Father), Jerry Paris (The Dick Van Dyke Show), Tina Louise (Gilligan's Island), Harry Morgan (Mash) and June Lockhart (Lost in Space). All play prominent roles in the film. There is also a cameo appearance from Penny Marshall (Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple) who plays one of the "employees" at Mr. Good's "domestic help" agency. And, actress Eve Plumb (The Brady Bunch) has a very brief online appearance as well. She plays a student at Bernard's school whom Walter asks for directions to Miss Spencer's classroom. See more »
Coffee, tea or pot roast: widower father enters the dating scene
Herschel Bernardi is an accountant and recent widower with two sons who is confused by many things: the difference between hiring a maid and an afternoon escort, how to feed his family without going out to eat every night and...New Math. Brash, occasionally funny TV-movie, directed by Jerry Paris and co-produced by Paris and Aaron Spelling, spotlights some amusing ladies, mostly from TV (Shirley Jones, Nanette Fabray, June Lockhart, Tina Louise, and Penny Marshall in a bit). Colorful and harmless, a cartoony sketch of modern-day dating in place of a satirical study on the subject. The gummy photography and thick-as-a-brick background scoring are both irritating, and there's too much of mush-mouthed Brandon Cruz as Bernardi's youngest child; otherwise, a lightly charming piece of harmless fluff.
