I've only seen it on TV and that was years ago. It seemed extremely strange if nothing else. I think it showed up in the old "Golden Turkey" books as one of the worst films ever (of course take that with a grain of salt, it's just the Medved's opinion).

Here's a review:

It sounds as if this might be appreciated on a camp or "so bad it's good" level, but I've always seen it mostly disparaged by reviewers.

Hell yes it's worth owning. One of the best films...ever. The scene that introduces Tony Curtis's character is reason enough. He's so over the top... I love it, love it, love it.

If you like movies about an indian growing out of someones back starring long washed up Tony Curtis. Sure! Some bad films are fun to watch.This one is not.
