"The Little Hut" comes from a period in time when the almighty Production Code had began to loosen up. So a rather provocative menage-a-trois comedy (with two of the participants married to each other) was actually permissible. Despite the desert island setting, the film betrays its stage origins. But the hot (and frequently wet) Ava Gardner is the perfect woman to be shipwrecked on an island with, and Stewart Granger & David Niven, while maintaining their gentlemanly exterior, prove adept at slapstick comedy. **1/2 out of 4.
