Movie was great and I wish it was available on video!!!!
26 December 1999 | by v4aholmSee all my reviews

This was a great movie and was a lot of fun. Ginger Rogers was fantastic as usual and Cornel Wilde was a hunk!. I would like them to make this film available on video. I want to add it to my collection. If only the movie stations would play these classics more often!
