Description by OLDIES.com:
Humphrey Bogart plays one of his rare comedy roles in this jaunty excursion about three convicts - Joseph (Bogart), Albert (Aldo Ray) and Jules (Peter Ustinov) - who are plotting their escape from Devil's Island. Fate intervenes when they hide out with the kindly but inept Felix Ducotel (Leo G. Carroll) and his family. Felix manages a store for his demanding, arrogant cousin Andre (Basil Rathbone), who decides to make the fatal mistake of stealing Albert's beloved pet, a poisonous snake! For the Ducotels, it will be a Christmas to remember - shared with a trio of rogues who turn out to be three "wise men" after all!
Three escapees from Devil's Island hide out with the family of a kindly French storekeeper. This amusing film features Bogart in a rare comedy role.
In an adaptation of the Broadway comedy, after escaping from Devil's Island, three prisoners end up taking refuge with a French shopkeeper's family after originally attempting to rob them.
