After the War, Germany was famous for two things - Zones and Drones. This is the regrettable story of two Drones who didn't even know their own Zones. It starts in Germany, gets nowhere, and stops at nothing. See more »
With the right script Nauton Wayne and Basil Radford were as funny as any.Alas this is not one.Much of their comedy came from understatement and so the one truly funny scene in this film is with Diana Dors.Shame they didn't pick her as their secretary.Too much of the time the film is far too farcical and quite frankly the pair are lost.The idea of jewels hidden in a ball had whiskers on it when it was used here,as is the scene set backstage in a theatre when they mess up the performance of everyone.In fact the most entertaining part of that skit is the musical seal.It is a great shame that they were not given much better material to work with.
