memorably funny!
21 October 2011 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

I also saw this Movie one late night in the early seventies and never forgot it. I could never find any more information about this Movie until now. This movie had some of the funniest scenes I have ever seen. I can remember roaring in laughter as the main character ran through a city with an umbrella while birds up above relieved themselves only on him (on his umbrella)while onlookers watched in disbelief. There were many scenes like this such as when he tried spraying bug spray in his car to kill the fly that wouldn't leave him alone, only to be stopped by a Police Officer because he caused a major traffic jam. I would love to see this movie again.
