REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 18-Sep-2006)

A classical comedy movie which is filmed in some extremly difficult settings and circumstances. An excellent cast of European and Bbritish actors with a small American influence. The film has an all age appeal and although made in 1969 still has sufficient appeal for viewers of the small screen. Typical Terry Thomas and Eric Sykes performances with impeccable timing were stranded throughout the film adding the British brand of humour in good volume. Tony Curtis also provided a good performance in his role alongside Susanne Hampshire, demonstrating his ability in a comedy role. Although many of the driving scenes were studio cuts of the star actors, the actual driving skills of the stand-ins/stuntmen were brilliant, particularly when you consider the cars that were being used in the film. Well worth watching again.
