Description by OLDIES.com:
Tell us, Max, what are the facts? The Navy's test -- Operation Honeymoon -- of the on-board supercomputer Max and its ability to predict an ICBM's place of impact is a success. But Lt. Fergie Howard (Steve McQueen) wonders if Max can pinpoint something smaller -- say, the slot where a Venice casino's roulette wheel's ball will land? With the help of a programmer (Jim Hutton), the answer is you betcha!
Major stardom was on the horizon when McQueen played the comedic role of a sailor eager to turn his shore leave into a gambling jackpot. Of course, where there's a port, there are girls (Brigid Bazlen and Paula Prentiss). And where there's a Cold War fleet, there's an admiral (Dean Jagger) suspicious about Max's strange bursts of signals. Bet on this lighthearted blend of gorgeous scenery, romance and laughter to break your entertainment bank.
Two American sailors in Italy attempt to use the Navy's electronic computer "Max" to win at roulette.
