Lloyd Hamilton and Bud Duncan formed a comedy team for Kalem in this

Duncan worked for an additional thirty years, his career lasting for no
In this one, they find a photo of Eileen Godsey and a map. This leads
them to the land of Euk, where she is queen of Black cannibals in grass
skirts, to whom Ham teaches the joy of dice.
