Foreign Spies and Bullwinkle the Moose

Sparks and Salty are two gobs . . . . err . . . . Sailors . . . stranded on a small South Pacific Island who send weather balloons aloft twice a day and record the weather data from the balloons. They also attach a photo of their handsome Lieutenant with a note saying that he is a lonely sailor looking for love. When women find the photo and note, they send cookies, cakes and other goods from home to the lonely sailor. Of course, Lieutenant Smith knows nothing about this scam, because Sparks and Salty intercept all of the mail along with the goodies, which they sell to the other sailors on the island, earning a nice chunk of change. When the Navy unit is notified that they will be replaced because their time on the island is over, they pack their cash and their list of ladies into the box with the weather reports, expecting to retrieve them once they are back in the States. When they arrive at the dock Lieutenant Smith is swarmed by dozens of women who have been writing him and sending him stuff, but he knows nothing about it. His fiancé Betty Lou sees the swarming women and gets very angry, breaking off their engagement. Salty and Sparks try to get their cash and the incriminating evidence of their prank, but they will not be able to get the sealed trunk, which will be taken by train to Washington. The two sailors do get to travel with the sealed trunk, along with Lieutenant Smith . . . . . Smith’s angry girlfriend Betty Lou is also on the train along with her father . . . . Senator Prentice, who is chairman of the Navy budget committee.

Now here is the interesting historical note . . . . In 1959 a new cartoon appeared on American television featuring a flying squirrel named Rocky and a dull-witted moose named Bullwinkle. The cartoon featured foreign spies Boris and Natasha, and Natasha was a thin hollow-cheeked woman with long black hair who always smoked a cigarette attached to a long holder . . . . . Exactly like Comrade Sonya DuBois in this story that was filmed seven years earlier. Sonya, played by Florence Marly, is a foreign spy dressed in black, with long black hair and an ever-present cigarette in a very long holder. . . . And an accent that sounds much like the cartoon spy named Natasha. Boris, played by Henry Kulky, is also one of the ‘comrades’ in the group of spies . . . . . Coincidence? . . . . . Maybe . . . . See what you think . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
