Trivia

Debbie Russ appeared as Tiger during the part of the story about the filming of an episode of Here Come the Double Deckers! (1970). In the Double Deckers TV series, Debbie's character always carried a stuffed tiger (also called Tiger). However in this film a lookalike had to be used for the stuffed tiger because the original had been lost shortly after filming of the Double Deckers finished. See more »

Not worth a double take
30 May 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A booring, predictable chase and adventure film that features Reg Varney. On the run the two lads hid out in a film studio. By coincidence Generous Jim, the man who's after them arrives at the studio on other business. It could have been so much better. Lots of familiar British character actors of the 1970s.
