It's a great film and you could write a thesis about why two working class lads from the North of England share the money - Eric wins it, Ernie takes it - but that's showbusiness.

MORECAMBE and Wise go to the South of France. The end. Inevitable jewel theft and synthetic glamour among the Stuyvesant smokers and James Bond extras who swarm to this allegedly exotic region.
