What an extraordinary cast! Two of the Doctor In The House mob (More and Bogarde), two future Basil Brush sidemen (Fowlds and a blink-and-you'll-miss-him Rodney Bewes), Sergeant Wilson from Dad's Army, Alf Garnett, Captain Beaky, an ex-Goon, Barraclough from Porridge, Slartibartfast, the old bloke from Waiting For God, the even older bloke from Dr Finlay's Casebook, the old woman from The Rag Trade and that mad French-Russian bloke who was in Hellzapoppin and things (Mischa Auer).

Pity the movie's a bit lame. Thurdsday afternoon viewing at its ultimate.
