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 low-key comedy features a wonderful cast which is generally fun to watch. There are not a lot of laugh-out-scenes and definitely not as funny as adversed, but still enjoyable. Although mostly greedy, most of the characters are still likable enough. I particularly enjoyed Jack Gilford and Milton Berle's roles, the latter when he played George Washington!
The rest of the cast includes such names as Dortohy Provine (there's a '60s actress that seemed to disappear quickly), Walter Brennan, Bob Denver, Victor Buono, Joey Bishop and Jamie Farr.
In all, a pleasant lightweight comedy which probably deserves to be better known.
