I have been unsuccessfully chasing this movie for 20 yrs. I was 7 when i watched this movie and it has stayed with me since as one of the funniest movies ever. Marty Feldman was a genius.It has now been 31 years since i saw it and it is still as clear in my mind as yesterday. Anne Margaret plays the damsel in distress perfectly and if anyone is lucky enough to have a friend who owns a copy.. borrow it, you will be left with a feel-good smile for a while! If anyone could burn me a copy I would be happy to pay (but not a zillion dollars please...single mother of 3 and struggling!) email me please: iamemily12 at g mail dot com. :)
