Turner Classics showed the movie several night ago. This was the first time I had seen the film. It was throughly enjoyable and it reminded me of some of the early British comedies from Pinewood and Ealing Studios. Spike Mulligan had a certain something about him that made him a very good comedian. He even used some of his voices that made him popular during the "Crazy Gang" days.
The film is disjointed and it is a series of comedy scenes. There is nothing here to take seriously. Even the Nazis are funny. The film was made by MGM British Studios and it had a great cast of British actors. There is even a cameo of a very young John Woods in the film. Camera work is fine also.
