Brandy for the Parson Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Brandy for the Parson is a wafer-thin comedy with plenty of maritime humor. James Donald and Jean Lodge play a young couple on a yachting vacation. They agree to share a ride with a few seemingly benign fellow landlubbers. What they don't know (but we do) is that their "harmless" yacht-mates are actually running a slick brandy-smuggling operation. With a few alterations here and there, the basic premise of Brandy for the Parson bobbed to the surface again in 1969 for Disney's Jean Lodge, which like the earlier film, benefitted from a strong cast of supporting comic players. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
