Movie Info

Lt. Quinton McHale (Ernest Borgnine) and his navy crew concoct a plot to make some money from horse racing results, but the plan flops and they ring up a $2,000 debt to a troop of Marines. When they try to recoup their losses, their ship runs into a building, which only compounds their debt. Soon McHale and the klutzy Parker (Tim Conway) devise a new idea: They will steal a racehorse and enter it in a race in disguise, hoping to win the prize money.

  • Edward J. Montagne, producer and sometimes-director of the vidpix, handles both chores in this longer color rendition and pulls out all the stops.

  • There's no questioning the loyalty of those video fans who will pay to see their favorites transposed to the movies. There's only a question of their taste.

  • Lots of shtick and hokum abounds in what was little more than an expansion of the popular television show.
