Harmless entertainment
3 June 2003 | by (Oceanside,Ca.) – See all my reviews

This is the third and last entry in the "Doberman Gang" films and while its probably the most lightweight of all of them it does have the best cast of the three films. Story is about a gambler (Supposedly) named Lucky (James Franciscus) who owes a mob guy named Solly (Jack Carter) about 13 thousand dollars and he doesn't have the money so a couple of his goons take him out to a remote area and work him over when an older gentleman named Daniel Hughes (Fred Astaire) discovers the scene. He has 5 dobermans and can control them with a gadget that looks like a TV remote control. He gets his dogs to save him and the goons drive off. After spending the night at Daniels, Lucky hitches a ride into town with a circus midget named Samson (Billy Barty) who helps him get a job with the circus shoveling up Elephant dung. He meets a bareback horse rider named Justine (Barbara Eden) and of course it doesn't take long to get smitten. After a while Lucky gets an idea to get Daniel and his dobermans to create an act and join the circus with him. Of course the mob guys and Lucky get involved in robbing the armored car that picks up the circus earnings every week. This is definitely more of a family oriented film and all three films were directed by Byron Chudnow who never did use any actor more than once in all three. This film has a veteran cast from films and television and while you certainly don't take a film like this seriously, you can sit back and enjoy it on a very easy level. One thing that stood out for me was how beautiful Barbara Eden was wearing her skimpy circus outfit. Eden was probably around 40 or so when this was filmed and her body is just gorgeous. She had abs and her belly button was in full display which we all could not see during her "Jeannie" days. While the first two films were about using the dobermans to rob for money, this one was the opposite. I guess it really wanted to aim at a very young audience. The one major gripe I had about this film was that their were long stretches of the film where you did not see the dobermans nor were they part of the story. Once they joined the circus then the film becomes more of what you expected. I kind of wished they made more sequels because I did enjoy these films. This one is definitely the most lightweight but how can you not enjoy a film that has Fred Astaire spouting from the bible and being in charge of 5 dobermans? Easy going entertainment. Did I mention that Barbara Eden looked sexy as hell in her outfit?
