When the Captain arrives in the sewer system with the replacement boats, he's shown riding in a miniature tugboat pulling five additional small boats. However when leaving with his 'crew', there are now seven filled boats, one each for Harry, Verna, Luther, Ralph, Dugan, Pop Gillis, and beagle Inky with her newborn pups. See more »
This is one of the most underrated caper films of all time. Jim Hutton was perfect in his role as a Harry, a mint worker who somehow sinks $100,000 down his garbage disposal. Also, the cast of characters he has surrounding him from Milton Berle as the weasle of a pawn shop owner to Walter Brennan as the former mint worker who felt he was put out to pasture. Dorothy Provine is also great as Verna, the girl who truly loves Harry. Too bad this film isn't out on video or D.V.D. because it is truly a lost classic.
