I first saw this movie in a different country and had not been able to find it in the U.S. until technology came to be what it is today. I had the great fortune to talk with Mr. Quinn regarding this movie and he spoke only of how wonderful it was working with his co-star. It is apparent when you watch how these two work with each other throughout the storyline. Playful, with impeccable timing their interactions show the quality of the full production value and is what makes this comedy timeless. Adventures, problems, humor, and conflicts created by their own silliness makes it a worthwhile film to watch. It's ending leaves one smiling and laughing.
