A sequel was mooted, but never made. The plot devised by the writers had the platoon at a country manor house, beneath which they would discover a clandestine U-boat base. The film was to conclude with Mainwaring's men taking control of a submarine, only to realise that none of them could steer it. See more »
When the General is about to lifted off his horse, under the bridge, his left hand is holding the reigns until the close up, when his hand is holding nothing, and the reigns are then seen around the saddle. See more »
TV shows from the 1970's which were turned into films were usually terrible. Dad's Army is the big exception. The formula from the TV show worked just as well on the big screen and with the bigger budget it's lovely to see people walking around Walmington-on-Sea. The plot is similar to parts of some of the TV episodes, but that doesn't matter because they're still as funny. Other parts like when Mainwaring, Wilson and Frazer are stranded on the raft are classic. The only thing I can criticise it for is the sometimes obvious lack of input from the TV shows creators and writers, Jimmy Perry and David Croft. But beautiful performances from Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn etc.
