Pretty Aliki Vouyouklaki had starred in several successful Greek films, notably the previous year's I Aliki Sto Naftiko, when the decision was made to promote her internationally. To that end, Finos Films entered into an atypical co-production with Aquarius Films for this outing, helmed by well-known director Rudolph Mate (D.O.A., When Worlds Collide). The plot, such as it is, has Jess Conrad as Barry, the playboy heir to a hamburger sauce fortune. His lawyer (Wilfrid Hyde-White) tells him that the secret recipe to the sauce was buried with his late uncle, and all he has inherited is a small Greek island which he is too poor to maintain. Aliki (Vouyouklaki) is the local schoolteacher there, and she soon begins a romance with Barry. Aliki, of course, knows the secret sauce recipe, which makes Barry rich enough to prevent the sale of the island to a hotel tycoon who wants to turn it into a resort.
