BOY ON A DOLPHIN

A light-hearted idyll brings British professor Alan Calder to the Greek island of Mykonos to find the statue of a boy on a dolphin, buried underwater with a classical vassel. It also exposes him to the gamin charm of Pero, whose father has exiled her to Mykonos to keep her away from the unsuitable, unworthy Guido. Pero, promising to take Calder to the statue which she originally had discovered with Guido, does not know that Guido has committed the statue to a Swedish millionaire. And Calder, taken down many times by Pero -- soon feels that he has also been taken in, spanks her soundly, and thus ensures her more respectful cooperation as they retrieve the statue together and she rewards him with her love.... A halcyon hour's entertainment-but no more.
