Billed as a comedy, this is both terribly unfunny and painfully boring.
Light, charming 1955 comedy about escaped cons on Devil's Island who help out a family of shopkeepers. Yeah, don't think hard about the plausibility of the story and enjoy the performances of Humphrey Bogart (who does nicely in a comic role), Peter Ustinov, and Aldo Ray as the convicts. Basil Rathbone, Leo G. Caroll, and Joan Bennett co-star. Directed by Michael Curtiz, who worked with Bogart on "Casablanca." Sort of remade in 1989 with Robert De Niro and Sean Penn.
Nice movie ... almost "Disney-esque'. Bogie carries the film, but he is ably supported by Peter Ustinov, Aldo Ray, Leo G. Carroll & Basil Rathbone as his foil. Not Bogie's best, but that is pretty high standard. Still an amusing picture to watch with the family.
What a great surprise. Didn't know it was a Christmas movie. Fun to see Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray and Peter Ustinov in a comedy. It's a musical ?? The three even sing a song in it.
fugitives from justice? WHAT EXACTLY DID THEY DO?
An unregarded classic comedy, fantastic acting by Bogart and Ustinov.
