Trivia

The soundtrack features a piece of music by Ron Goodwin entitled "The Schickel Shamble" (which accompanies many of Gert Fröbe's scenes). This was later used as the theme for the BBC radio show "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" which featured William Rushton among the panellists. See more »

Goofs

During the start of the race at John O'Groats, some of the "snow" is blown off by the wind in clumps, revealing it to be soap suds strewn about the scene. See more »

Wacky Races style comic caper
13 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The movie isn't that funny, although you probably don't notice that what with the great actors on display - The wonderful gap toothed Terry-Thomas as a kind of Dick Dastardly Figure, Eric Sykes as his Mutley style sidekick,It has Tony Curtis romancing Susan Hampshire & The great comic actors Peter Cook & Dudley Moore as British Army men who have the best scenes and funniest lines & Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) as a escaped convict transporting stolen treasures. The scenery is wonderful as they travel throughout Europe Mostly Britain and France and has a nice 1920's feel, just don't expect many laughs, just sit back and enjoy some of the best British Actors many of who are no longer with us.

All in all a likeable caper with great performances

Rating 8/10
