Trivia

When first captured, Tommy is given chicken to eat and comments "Some chicken! Some neck!", a reference to Churchill's speech to the Ottawa parliament in December 1941. See more »

Goofs

When Tommy is ordered to stand for Captain Raleigh he is so startled that, as he stands, he drops the chicken leg he is eating. It clearly misses the table and must surely have landed on the floor. Yet, in the next shot which is made out to be in real time, as Tommy cheekily sits back down - the chicken leg is already back in his hand without him having picked it up off the floor. See more »

Good feeling movie. Good character actors.
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked it. It's a cute little movie. Miss Dall was the spark in it that kept it going. The ending could have been better, maybe left open the possibility of other adventures (a sequel or two). Would be nice to make a modern version. Maybe going back or forward to a few different places in time with some chase scenes and twists and turns, like losing one of the characters in an era and then returning to rescue them before an unfortunate event. I'm tired of all the special effect movies now-a-days with no real plot and aren't funny, that are violent and very forgetful. The effects used in the movie were nice considering they were from the forties.
