Summary
Tale of the exploits of a group of travelers on a steamboat, each hopping to carry off a huge swindle in the uranium fields of Northern Africa. A commercial success upon its release, this cult favorite has come to define the genre of spy movie spoofs in its whimsical parody of the Maltese Falcon and other classic 1940's detective movies
