Trivia

Frederic Raphael said that he and Leslie Bricusse, both recent graduates of Cambridge University when they first wrote this film, meant the film to be a charming English comedy and a tribute to their alma mater. The producers, however, saw it as a vehicle for the German Hardy Kruger, whom they were trying to build into a star in British films, and ordered extensive rewriting (there was no German character in the original draft!) which Raphael felt ruined the project. He has tended in later years to ignore the existence of this film and has spoken of "Nothing But The Best", made nearly six years later, as his first film script. See more »

Charming brit-comedy
23 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

German exchange student (Hardy Kruger) comes to the fictional University College, Cambridge. A collection of stereotypical but enjoyable Varsity capers ensue. Sylvia Syms is positively radiant - the proverbial English Rose. She has a knack for bringing the film to life whenever she appears on screen. The remainder of the players form a very predictable bunch of undergrads in their mid-twenties and profs in ttheir mid-eighties. Lovely views of the City, and one or two well orchestrated set-pieces (the raid on all-female college Girton is notable) make this effortless viewing.
