Did You Know?

During one of the interludes that Shelly Ferguson (Hilarie Thompson) spends with the free-spirited Bo (Luke Halpin), she admires the slogan "Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came" that he has displayed on his motorcycle. That phrase is also the title of the next (and last) movie--Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? (1970)--in which their co-star, Pamela Britton, appeared before her untimely death in 1974.See more »

Wallace Arnold tours meets 'Its a MAD MAD MAD World', 28 April 2003
Author: Edu-16 from New Zealand

Well when I last saw this one I was wearing Green check trousers and an Orange nylon jumper. Got to be at least 25 years. Ouch. But this one has worn rather better than me.

From memory I was expecting a sort of American Carry On movie - and I suppose this isn't a bad comparison. But the jokes are still funny - quite sharp infact at times. The acting isn't too OTT - no Kenneth Williams mugging here - and the scenery of an as yet unspoilt Europe was a nice reminder of what Europe used to be like.

Yes - the plot is pretty 'souffle' (light, sags in the middle) - but Ian McShane holds it together. Infact , both me and the wife were at a loss as to why I.M. never made it mega-big. He had a lot going for him back then, and he's aged well.

Worth a watch - should bring back some memories for any who first got to know Europe on a coach tour (Wallace Arnold as in my case).
