This film has a good cast.Three of the actors,Wilfred Hyde White,Jon Pertwee and Peter Butterworth ,would become well known for their film and TV roles in the years that followed.It is therefore a shame that the writers could not produce a funny script.Director Guest only has himself and Ian Messiter to blame.Messiter was the originator of the BBC radio programme ^Just A Minute".A sure fine of the desperation of writers is when they repeat a gag,in this case the Bren carrier knocking over the gate post every time it enters and exits.Fairbanks wisely saw the writing on the wall and was far more involved in TV from here on in.Donlan gives the sort of performance that she gave in all the other films she made with Guest.
