Directed by Michael Curtiz • 1955 • United States
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray, Peter Ustinov
This wickedly offbeat Christmas comedy gives Humphrey Bogart a rare chance to display his lighter side. He stars alongside Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray as one of three escaped convicts from Devil’s Island who find refuge with a French milliner (Leo G. Carroll) and his wife (Joan Bennett) and daughter (Gloria Talbott) in the midst of the holiday season. Though they initially have less-than-honorable plans for the family, the escapees are gradually won over by their host’s hospitality. But what to do about the evil uncle (Basil Rathbone) threatening the family’s business?
