Did You Know?

Patrick McGoohan's character "Johnny Cousin" uses the phrase "Be seeing you" when he says goodbye to the road manager "Berger" towards the end of the movie. This is a commonly heard phrase in "The Prisoner" (1967), "The Prisoner" (2009), and was also one of McGoohan's catchphrases in "Danger Man" (1960) and "Secret Agent" (1964) .See more »
Continuity: When Patrick McGoohan's character is playing a drum solo about halfway through the film, the drum kit used is different in the medium shots and POV shots, suggesting that the latter were likely shot at a later time with a different drummer.See more »

An interesting period piece - especially for jazz lovers, 4 November 2000
Author: Roger Hinton from Brighton

This is an interesting period piece, especially for jazz lovers and those who remember the early sixties. The plot is fairly silly, but entertaining enough to hold the attention. It tells the story of jealousy and scheming amongst a number of jazz musicians at a party held in a London warehouse.

The acting is fairly good, but what makes it especially interesting is the fact that the action takes place against the back drop of a continuous jam session featuring solos by musicians such as Dave Brubeck and Tubby Hayes.
