Hayley Mills (Nicky Ferris), Peter McEnery (Mark Camford), Eli Wallach (Stratos), Joan Greenwood (Frances Ferris)

A typical Disney vehicle for Hayley Mills, starring as a young girl on holiday on the Greek Island of Crete who inadvertently gets involved with a group of jewel thieves.
It's your usual sweet-as-pie performance from the juvenile star, the title song though, penned by Terry Gilkyyson, is as annoying as they come, and may have you reaching for the off button.
