Trivia

The film was originally passed as an uncut 'X' by the BBFC in April 1963 and an accompanying poster produced, though for various reasons the film was not released in the UK until 1966. It was then passed with heavy cuts to remove some of the darker elements with an 'A' certificate and released in September 1966. The 1996 Encore video version (now rated PG) featured the original uncut print. See more »

Goofs

Many of Uncle Potiphar's animals are stuffed mounts, with the live "hyena" being an obvious wolf or dog. See more »

Loved it!!!!!!!!!!
28 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie expecting to see an old school horror, but what I found was one of the greatest comedies to have ever been made! I could not help but lay on the floor crying because it was so hilarious. If only the writers of modern day shows were to write like they did for this show, they would find that their ratings would go sky high and people would start going out to the movies again for a great comedy. Even the 'dirty' parts of this film will have you laughing and wish that there was more movie to watch. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to watch a comedy that does not make you feel uncomfortable. I would recommend not drinking anything before watching this, because you just may find your pants soaking wet from laughing so hard by the time it is over!
