Herbert Harris is a traveling salesman who makes his way into a remote Italian village to sell his wares. There, he finds many single and attractive women who all pursue him madly. He quickly learns that the village has all but one single man left, as the majority have left to find work.
Take a comic genius (Eric Sykes), sprinkle in a collection of regular British TV comic actors (John Le Mesurier, Warren Mitchell), simmer over a simple but dated comedy premise (a salesman discovers an Italian village full of nubile women) and you have the comedy-movie equivalent of potatoes: archetypal and essential, but a bit bland.
