An Eastern cult discovers that the sacrificial ring is missing. Ringo, drummer of The Beatles band has it; sent by the girl (who's to be sacrificed) as a gift. Clang, Ahme, Bhuta and several cult members leave for London to retrieve the ring. After several failed attempts to steal the ring, they confront him in an Indian restaurant. Ringo learns that if he does not return the ring soon, he will become the next sacrifice. Ringo then discovers that the ring is stuck on his finger. Its a race against time; John, Paul, and George try to protect their friend while they're all being chased not only by Clang and his minions, but also by two mad scientists and the chief inspector of Scotland yard. Will Ringo be saved, or will he be sacrificed? Written by

When the ring slips off Ringo's finger, he says "It's off I'm saved", when he says that, his mouth isn't moving. See more »
Allow me. I'm a bit of a famous mimic in my own small way, you know James Cagney.
[imitating Ringo on the phone]
Hello, there, this is the famous Ringo here, gear fab. What is it that I can do for you, as it were, gear fab?
Not a bit like Cagney.

"I Need You" by George Harrison is the only song title credited in the end credits. As this is shown you can hear George say '"I Need You" by George Harrison'. See more »
A great movie. People here seem to complain the plotline was too silly. But keep in mind this was during the Bond phase(almost a forerunner to Get Smart). A sacrificial ring caught on the Famous Ringo's finger. A mad scientist trying to take over the world. An evil cult trying to kill our heroes. A girl from that cult secretly helping our heroes. Typical Bondish plotlines.
It also has great one-liners(Maybe it's that I'm just your average 14 year old American who loves British humor), and just weird ones that sound funny. "I don't subscribe to your religion." "He's out to rule the world if he can get a government grant." "Now, look here, Paul. I've had some great times with this finger. How do you know I wouldn't miss it?"
And, of course, greeeeeaaaaat music.
