Boy have things changed since the '50s! This story of a New Yorker (Norm Paperman) buying & managing a hotel on a fictional Carribbean Island had a bit of everything. Poor Norm! Everything that could go wrong did. It was painful to read about his misfortunes, but hilarious at the same time.

The shenanigans of the money man remind me of the things that led to our current financial mess. I'm so glad the racial & other mores of that time are behind us.
