Based on the novel...
9 July 2003 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

Based on 'Salute the Toff' by John Creasey, published in 1941. This was 6th in the series of 'Toff' novels, which were written/published between 1938 ('Introducing the Toff') and 1977 ('The Toff & the Crooked Copper').

Although uncredited on IMDB, Creasey is also the creator of George Gideon of Scotland Yard (the TV series 'Gideon's Way') and John Mannering aka The Baron (TV series 'The Baron).
