Part 1 of 2. A Scandinavian cruise on the Royal Viking Sky begins in London and travels through Oslo and Stockholm. Grant Cooper (John Davidson) is the VP of Promotions for the Midnight Sun suntan lotion and is seeking a native Scandinavian female to be the company spokesperson from dozens of applicants. Greta Lund (Christopher Norris) impersonates a native Scandinavian in hopes of winning. Lonely Mel Davis (Jack Klugman) thinks women don't like him because of his large nose, so he plans to get cosmetic surgery in Stockholm. But he meets Kay Webber (Susannah York) along the way and she falls in love with him but thinks he's planning a different kind of surgery. Scientist Dr. Fabian Cain (Telly Savalas) creates a robot duplicate of Isaac (Ted Lange) and plans to use him for nefarious purposes, with help from aspiring actress Delia Parks (Janet Jackson), who may or may not be in love with Isaac. Wealthy Swedish actress Helga Bjorsson (Priscilla Barnes) captivates Gopher (Fred Grandy).
Did You Know?
Aside from the atrocious pronunciation and accent, actress Priscilla Barnes is actually speaking Norwegian in the scene with the traffic cop. However, the backwards sentence order used to try to make her English sound foreign is not typical in Scandinavian speakers of English. See more
