I don't go for all that many dark comedies, and I don;t know his one terribly well, but I remember liking it. Donald Pleasance practically made a career out of playing either completely mild-mannered characters, or "Jekyll and Hyde" types, so this part of a henpecked husband who makes himself over as a swinger was just right for him. Plus, I'm almost incapable of hating a film with Terry-Thomas in it. Or any of those "Swinging London" ones (though most people either dislike them, or like them for being "quaint," and my reason is neither of the two!). This one also had a pretty funny "Columbo" type police detective, with one of the best lines in the film : "I see you've had the murder weapon repaired." (You'd have to see the story for that to make sense.)
