The priceless Blue Water sapphire is coveted by the heirs of Sir Hector Geste - his new wife, Flavia; his daughter, Isabel; and his adopted twin sons, heroic Beau and pathetic Digby. When Sir Hector takes to his deathbed (where he remains for the duration of the film), Beau absconds with the stone, to keep it from his stepmother. Flavia pursues him to North Africa, dispensing sexual favors to promote her schemes. Written by <>

The family motto of the identical twin brothers Geste was "Geste et Geste. Nil Separatum Est" which is meant to translate as "Geste and Geste. Never shall we be parted". The associated Geste coat of arms seen in the movie were two identical butt cheeks of a horse's ass. See more »

this can be funny. it can be entertaining. it can be a rotten tomato. and it is true the second half slows down the story .but if your looking for story read war and peace. Marty Fledman is funny in smaller doses,as in young Frankenstien,here to much of a good thing. what this movie has is Ann Margret. plays a sexy hot step mom out to get her way and who would argue with this nasty really needs to be on DVD. could ware out review and pause on Ann Margret alone.on that note i recommend this movie with my whole heart. my whole mind and soul. hot sexy nasty cigar smoking Ann Margret. I don't know what more an American boy could want.
