Hey, there.......do you fancy being in the film?
26 February 2005 | by (Suffolk, England) – See all my reviews

If anyone out there has this on video (unlikely as it apparently stinks) then I would like to see it. Why? Well, my Dad is in it!!!!! The stately home scenes were part shot at Somerleyton Hall, not far from my hometown. Anyway, when my Dad and his brother stopped the car to see what all the commotion was about, a back-combed sycophant suddenly appeared, carrying a clipboard and asked if they could spare a few moments to fill a couple of subsidiary roles.

Hey presto, the old man became a stretcher bearing ambulance man and his brother became a taxi driver. They were given exceptional 24 hour equity memberships (the actors union)and were dismissively paid about £10 each for their trouble - not bad for 1970!!! They were also told that the working title of the film was "Weekend Murders" but it might have some kind of Italian title upon release.

Their abiding memory was of Lance Percival(English comedian & actor on the fringe of the "carry on" team, popular 1960's/1970's)being locked in the portable toilet by one of the sound crew.

There you go - a bit of movie trivia for you.
