Saw half of it
28 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

I managed to see a highly incomplete version of this and was therefore able to add the names of several other cast members to this database. This is a nice looking production, with the usual high standard of costuming found in English film. It does not look dated at all. Jeremy Brett is extremely handsome as Captain Jack Absolute and plays his part well. Beryl Reid is a very imposing Mrs. Malaprop though sadly I didn't get to hear her say the line about being 'as stubbor as an allegory on the banks of the Nile". The other cast members are generally excellent.
