Shirley Booth on the Border
11 July 2016 | by drednmSee all my reviews

An uneasy comedy about a pair of innocents (Shirley Booth, Carol Lynley) touring Europe who get duped into smuggling what they think is a religious statue from Italy into Austria. Despite the espionage and murder that goes on around them, they remain unaware as they snoop around an old castle and cheerfully go along with the inept police and border guards, having fun duping them.

The pair totally unaware of whatever is inside the boxes they happily drive back and forth across the border and at one point believe they are carry crates of apples.

Plot aside, Booth (after her long run in the ht TV series "Hazel") and Lynley are fun to watch; the others less so. Kurt Kasznar and Michael J. Pollard inhabit the old castle, Charles Drake is the first smuggler, Donnelly Rhodes is an undercover French cop, Ilka Windish is the hotel manager, and David Opatoshu and Gayle Hunnicutt seem to be spies.

Worth a look to see Shirley Booth.
