The Cruise

Canada, 1967 (MIFF 1969, Programme 33)

Director: John Hubley

A group of passengers on a pleasure cruise have placed their trust in a multi-faced helmsman and chief steward. A lottery gives the winners an opportunity to play their tune on a magnificent juke box. But the right won by one passenger is usurped by another. At first, every­body is amused. . . .
