A con man named Steve Blair (Robert Preston), enlists an out-of-work, drunk writer Paul Ferris (Tony Randall) to write a fictitious screenplay he hopes will be funded by a rich, but unethical producer (who also happens to be a mobster) named Tony Dallas (Walter Matthau). As if that's not enough, Blair then plans to scam the money from Dallas, all with the beauty of a gorgeous Greek isle.Written by
I know that this film may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed it. I least I have the memory of having enjoyed it. It has many years since I've seen it. I still check regularly to see if has come to DVD or VHS. I would love to see it again.
Tony Randall is good as usual. Robert Preston and Walter Matthau, while they may not be at their best, are nevertheless still Robert Preston and Walter Matthau. The star power coupled with the pure scenic beauty of the locale is enough of a reason to bring this film to the public again. There are many others of lesser quality which are released today. Why not this one?
