You know, someone once told me, that when a bureaucrat wants to keep his job, he stamps everything 'Top Secret.' Is that true?
It's probably true, sometimes.
I... hate your secrets, Bernard.

I have not seen this film since about 1974 and yet I can still remember the chant of the thugs(a young Oliver Reed and Kenneth Cope of Randall and Hopkirk(My partner the ghost-US)).I don't know why but this film is almost unknown and I don't think it has been shown on UK T.V for almost 25 years.I think it captures a number of issues of that time e.g youth culture,the bomb etc and it is well worth seeing.
