Storyline

A Scottish immigrant on board ship becomes a pawn in a jewel heist aboard the S.S. Cognac, a three-star liner. Blackie Dawson, the uncrowned king of jewel thieves, and his accomplice Pearl Blackstone, have stolen a huge ruby. A detective is searching every cabin, so Blackie forces our young Scot to swallow the gem and, under threat of being shot, to stay mum. The detective is assisted by Flora Danube, a blue-eyed Bulgarian daisy who keeps those eyes open. To escape death, the young Scot disguises himself as a woman, but that draws a lot of attention; when his disguise is discovered, he must climb for his life. Is a European union in the offing?

Not One of Harry's Best, But It Has Its Moments!
19 April 2008 | by JohnHowardReidSee all my reviews

Not one of Langdon's funniest outings, although I feel it would have been so, if Vernon Dent had played the Blackie Dawson role. There is nothing like that same rapport here between Langdon and Christian Frank.

Another problem is the slapstick drag scene which is allowed to run too long, even though it has a number of choice moments including the bit in which helpful Harry offers to remove a streamer from a matronly dancer's back.

Another letdown is that, despite a great intro and her second billing, Eugenia Gilbert's role turns out to be disappointingly small. To compensate, Sennett has fleetingly filled out the passenger list and surrounded Langdon with lots of well-dressed Bathing Beauties at the ship's Fancy Dress Ball.

Directors Jones and Edwards handle all the proceedings with competence and even a modicum of style.
