Johnny Lingo (1969)
"Johnny Lingo": Text from Back Video Cover
Johnny Lingo bargains for a bride, paying an exorbitant amount and causing a sensation on the island. Being an expert trader, he knows the value of things--especially self esteem. Unfortunately, Mahana's neighbors do not acknowledge her great worth until the couple returns to the island later, and the community sees that the marriage has blossomed into a partnership of equals.
