Storyline

A pair of shipboard smugglers have a large diamond hidden inside a small elephant statuette, which they plant on absentminded Lord Epping to get it past customs. Now, his lordship is visiting Uncle Matt Lindsay who looks just like him. Thanks to flirtatious Diana's efforts to get the elephant back, the comic confusion proliferates, with 'spitfire' Carmelita (now a blonde) playing a prominent part. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

This movie is a classic
18 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My Grandfather has this movie and I think it is such a good comedy because when Matt puts on that wig and other things to look identical to Lord Basil Epping the laughs start up. It is extremely funny how Matt's wife mistakes the real Lord Basil Epping for her husband Matt twice in this movie. All of the Mexican Spitfire movies are classics and I think they should be brought back on DVD so we can all enjoy such good movies that you can get a laugh out of every one of them. It is so funny how the people that serve food and drinks get confused when Matt is pretending to be Epping because of how Lord Epping likes one kind of drink and Matt likes a different kind. All the Mexican Spitfire movies should be put on DVD so younger generations will have good movies to watch that do not have any cus words in them or deaths. These Mexican Spitfire movies would all be General Audience because of how good these movies are.
