A rollicking caper with a dopey central conceit well executed by a decent budget. The locales are vivid and the cast play it broad without quite turning to ham. Stevenson is an underarrted Director with many of his Disney films minor masterpieces of their genre, neatly infused with zesty fun and having a remarkably sense of place (notably the period pieces). One often feels a sense of fullness with his work.
