More About Overboard
Hawn is a super-rich spoiled brat, over-bored you might say. Russell is a struggling carpenter who should know how to handle brats since he raised four of them. One night Goldie goes overboard on her yacht, loses her memory, and winds up in Kurt's world. Then the sparks begin to fly.
Main Cast & Crew
Garry Marshall - Director
Joanna is an obnoxious, wealthy woman, who becomes afflicted with amnesia after she slips off her yacht. Dean Proffitt is the gruff, blue-collar woodworker who recently had a nasty run-in with Joanna. Dean spots the memory-free lass on television, and in an act of vengeance, "comes forward" to declare her as his wife. The once-pampered Joanna is now performing housework and caring for Dean's four uncouth boys! The two eventually fall in love with each other, but when Joanna's real husband shows up (and makes her aware of her riches), whom will she choose?
Filmed in Metrocolor, with Technicolor prints, and Dolby sound.
