This mostly silly, sometimes amusing, but in general flat football comedy would have lost a fortune had not the University of Notre Dame (which objected to a scene in which Fighting Irish players are entertained by harem girls) sued the studio, drawing the curious to the theaters. Crenna,

an infamous football player-turned-U2 pilot, crash-lands in the fictional Middle Eastern nation of Fawzia, whose ruler (hammily portrayed by Ustinov) presents the American with an ultimatum: either coach the football team the king is assembling for his son--who was cut by Notre Dame--or prepare

for a trip to the USSR. The king then informs the US State Department that if it still wants to have a military base in his country, Notre Dame will have to take on his team in Fawzia. An international crisis brews when the Notre Dame players refuse to lie down in the climactic game, but MacLaine,

a reporter who has joined the king's harem to do a story and who has fallen for Goldfarb, comes up with an unexpected resolution to the problem.
