This is a thoroughly entertaining and engaging comedy which runs along in a lively fashion, and produces energetic performances from all concerned, particularly the likable leads - Pat Boone, Milo O'Shea and Fidelma Murphy. In fact, of the films featuring Pat Boone, this is undoubtedly one of his best, and still stands the test of time. The premise of the story is basic, and the theme of trying to retrieve a wrongly-written letter forms the whole tenor of the film. The fact that it never drags or bores is largely down to the cast and the fast-paced direction. It is set in Dublin and London, and benefits from its location scenes. In fact, it's such an enjoyable film that it's difficult to fathom why, along with Pat Boone's other excellent film "The Yellow Canary," it has never received a release on video or DVD. Recommended to all who appreciate fun films!!
