Storyline

A mad cap British farce about mistresses and minks in the London fur salon of Bodley, Bodley, and Crouch. Gilbert Bodley plans to sell an expensive mink to a mobster dirt cheap for his wife, because the wife is Gilbert's mistress and he wants to "Close the deal." However, instead of doing his own dirty work, he gets his reluctant partner, Arnold Crouch, to do it for him. Things go awry when the mobster plans to buy it for his OWN mistress and soon the whole plan goes out the window along with women's clothing and a few other things. Mistaken identities, scantily clad women kept hidden in closets, mobsters, suspicious wives, and misguided shoppers keep this comedy trucking along in the spirit of the Marx Brothers' and Noises Off. Written by Michael Puskar

A Fun "Carry On'" Like Comedy
24 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bit too risqué to be a Carry On film, despite the presence of the great Joan Sims and Barbara Windsor, this is a farce starring Leslie Phillips as Bodley, who is buying a fur coat for his mistress Janie (the electric blue eyed Julie Ege). Janie is married and her husband comes to the furrier and there begins this true comic farce of double entendres, clothes thrown out the window and hiding in the store room. This film is fast paced, and everyone here has a flair for comedy, including Ray Cooney, who also co-wrote and co-directed this film. Its truly a film of its time, a sex comedy that never reaches porn. Its just fun to watch. Also included is the always welcome Moira Lister as Bodley's wife. A bit improbable as to the story itself, but who cares? If you like sex comedies, this is a good choice. If you want your Carry On film to take one more step forward, here it is. Its fun.
