Storyline

Beautiful high society type Doris Worthington is entertaining guests on her yacht in the Pacific when it hits a reef and sinks. She makes her way to an island with the help of singing sailor Stephen Jones. Her friend Edith, Uncle Hubert, and Princes Michael and Alexander make it to the same island but all prove to be useless in the art of survival. The sailor is the only one with the practical knowhow to survive but Doris and the others snub his leadership offer. That is until he starts a clam bake and wafts the fumes in their starving faces. The group gradually gives into his leadership, the only question now is if Doris will give into his charms. Written by Gary Jackson <garyjack5@cogeco.ca>

This movie does have something resembling a plot, but to summarize it would be to waste your time and insult your intelligence. It would also distract you from the movie's very real merits, which can be summed up as 1. Merman, 2. Burns and Allen, and 3. Crosby. Merman is the real star here; she gets one great musical number after the next and performs them with gusto and comedic flair. Crosby gets even more numbers, and performs them well, but they aren't as interesting. Burns and Allen do several comedy skits in their best style (Gracie and daffy is not something that you want to miss). The plot, or what passes for one, gets us from one musical or comedy number to the next, and for that its weakness can be forgiven.

Two notes. 1. Carol Lombard is wasted in this movie. 2. There is a tame bear in this movie that is constantly abused, which gets rather aggravating.

If you can make a copy of this movie, cut out the dialog and you will have some entertaining numbers.
