Starting off with a mutiny and ending with the cavalry saving the day, this film combining two diverse story lines features the team of Arlen and Devine staving off mutineers and freed slaves aboard a naval ship, circa 1840. After the exciting opening, the ship lands on the California

coastline and the pair wander the territory until they come across the Mexican army, which is out to destroy a small California settlement. There's dangerous doings until the cavalary rescues the village from destruction. The weak script can never decide in which direction to go. Is this a western

or a sea adventure, a comedy or drama? Whatever the case, the starring team manages to rise above the material because of the surprisingly strong direction, which keeps the action moving. The laughs are natural and the fight sequences expertly staged.
