A review by talisencrw

By talisencrw

Another fine short from the boys at their peak, this time stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying their best to avoid both an awful boss and a vindictive crew that they tricked into becoming fellow sailors. A fine supporting crew make this required viewing for comedy buffs of the period.
