Could be the worst movie ever...Bert Convey was the STAR!!!
13 April 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I played this movie when I managed a theatre in Tucson, Az. I believed it opened on Friday and closed on Wednesday. It's not even bad enough to be good. I've always felt bad for Phil Silvers. Thank God nobody saw this abomination!
