Knockabout war time support is a curiosity.
5 January 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The tail end of McLaglan and Lowe's adventures as Flagg and Quirt from WHAT PRICE GLORY (the names are marginally changed) is a piece of production line entertainment that turns the battling buddies into Abbott & Costello substitutes complete with another undercrancked chase for a finale.

Things could be worse. Expert Technicians and support cast make it all move along quite nicely and there's some knowing references to fifteen years before or our finding the pair reduced to wheeling round a gout case and sweeping up at the race track.

Very evocative of WW2 entertainment. Generous padding with night club numbers.
