Chuck and his pal Fearless flee a South African carnival when their sideshow causes a fire.

When Lamour and Crosby are in the rowboat on the lake, harp music plays when they dangle their hands in the water. At the end of the song Crosby sings, the harp music begins before Lamour puts her hand in the water. You can see her surprised look when she realizes she is late. See more »
Well, you probably had to be there...I couldn't get into this, the humour seemed to be from another planet. I'm not saying I hated this film, but aside from a split second appearance by a white cockatoo, I was never more than very mildly interested. Curiously the cockatoo was called 'a stale character' yet that adjective could better have been applied to most of the other characters, the jokes and ideas. But it's silly being too rough on this sort of film - it never aims for more than it achieves. Every country that makes films has these sort of production line comedies and they served a purpose. It says a lot about how dominant US culture is that such Z grade stuff from the US is world famous while it is rightly ignored when it comes from other countries. I'm not gibving a rating as I have no idea what to give it. Actually, come to think of it, rating films seems pretty dumb overall.
