Trivia

A spellbound Fisk reads a paperback copy of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover". This was a timely gag in 1961, as its' publishers Penguin Books had been prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act in a widely-publicised trial at the Old Bailey the previous year. See more »

acted out with great enthusiasm!
19 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A good film that borrowed on the 'mousetrap' plot, & rather predictable. Acted out at a fast pace with great enthusiasm by all. Sid James was his usual brilliant self & Ken Connor too. Shirley Eaton played her part well. Dressed in a shift over a nylon slip for much of the film, strange how, when running from room to room, she'd continually hold her shift together in an attempt to stop it falling open thus giving us a glimpse of her slip underneath. Naively prudish of her, & ironic in that 2 yrs later she would appear in a Bond film wearing nothing but a coat of paint! At the time Ken Connor was one of the most sought after comedy film actors.
