Trivia

Liz Fraser (Ethel) was still learning to drive at the time the film was made. In the scene where Ethel follows the army convoy in an Aston Martin, she kept stalling as she set off on cue, so ropes were attached to the front of the car, out of shot, and it was towed. See more »

Goofs

The prisoners are able to escape from their cell by removing the pins from the hinges. For obvious reasons real cell doors do not have hinges on the inside. See more »

Quotes

[Dodger is reading the financial pages of the newspaper in his prison cell]
Dodger Lane: Cor, the bottom's dropped right out of Colonial Cocoa. When you knock off any money, lads, never put it on the Stock Exchange - I'll tell you that for nothing.

User Reviews

 
Entertaining comedy film.

An excellent film with well acted parts by all the actors, especially the supporting cast. Also an original ending to get around the UK Censor requirements of the day, that criminals can't be seen to profit from their crimes. Lionel Jeffries is excellent as the hard disciplined prison officer, who is eventually caught out by the criminals.
