This film was made in the wake of the success of This Man Is News.Whilst the first film has been widely shown I cannot remember having seen this before.I hadn't missed much.The plot revolves around forging of pound notes in Paris.English detectives are involved with Garry Marsh playing the comedy sidekick.Barnes is a journalist for a continental edition of an English paper whose editor,Alistair SIM tears out what little hair he has.The production is not particularly good with most of the money having been spent on Valerie Gibson's coiffure and couture.Indeed her hair and dresses seem to change every scene.They were going to do a third but wisely abandoned the idea.
