Review

Sandy Duncan is a smart little American actress-comedienne who never quite made it in the movies. Here's her best try, a funny family comedy about a duck that lays eggs with solid gold yolks.

It's hard not to be charmed by Sandy's bright-eyed, fizzy performance, especially when she's trying to deposit one of the eggs in her bank account.

Personable support from a whole roster of Disney stalwarts, including Dean Jones, Edward Andrews, Joe Flynn, Jack Kruschen, Arthur Hunnicutt and Vaughn Taylor, and a hectic chase that culminates in a rooftop rescue add to the winning omelette of ingredients here.
