Storyline

In the small Dutch village of Kattwyk-am-Zee, Mayor Van Borkem bemoans the fate of the town. Once a mecca for tourists because of the Red Mill, a landmark, the town now is neglected. The mayor informs Bertha, who operates a local inn, and her pretty niece Gretchen, that he has an offer from the Brussels World's Fair to buy the mill. Meanwhile, in a expensive car on route to the Brussels World's Fair, Hollywood movie stars Rod and Candy Carter and their friend and "producer" Johnny Shaw arrive and take an interest in the Mill.

Updated version of Victor Herbert's 2 act operetta. Shirley Jones and Elaine Strich play sisters who own the Red Mill whose arms won't turn until true love returns to their town. Enter Elaine May and Mike Nichols as spoiled Hollywood actors with Donald O'Connor as their go-fer. Shirley and Donald realize they are substituting dreams for life and promptly fall in love. Elaine captures the elusive mayor, the egotistical actors rediscover their passion, everyone kisses and the mill turns again.

Nichols and May are hilarious; O'Connor dances up a storm; Shirley's voice soars and Eliane Strich is salty as the sadder but wiser elder sister.

Delightful and worth viewing.
