Skirt-chasing SIC agent Craig Gamble and millionaire bachelor Todd Armstrong set out to foil mad scientist Dr. Goldfoot's plot to use his army of bikini-clad robots to seduce wealthy men into signing over their assets.
Associated British obviously saw Drake as the new Norman Wisdom.Thus the first seven minutes are entirely devoted to Drake.It is embarrassingly unfunny.The plot of this film,when it gets going,concerns the plot by WRENS to take over a Navy ship to prove their worth.Unfortunately from time to time Drake reappears thus bringing the film to a full stop.Drakes material was more suited to the halls and tv.However his style went out of fashion and he is now long forgotten.
