You can bet all the sponges in the ocean that this is no work of Shakespeare.

This one takes place down in Florida, near Key West, its about the sponge farmers, the Greeks vs the Conch's (Local Key Westerns) back in the day. A young Robert Wagner loses his girl to a Greek, she runs off and gets married, Dam Greeks. Anyway its a good one if you like the ole shool movies. Its in my Collection will you add it to yours.
