Trivia

The 'Play Database' describes this movie's source 'Bullshot Crummond' play as a "parody of low-budget 30s detective movies" whilst 'TV Trope' says that it is a parody of "1930s British heroes like 'Bulldog Drummond' and 'Biggles'". Of the latter, a new version, Biggles: Adventures in Time (1986), would be made and released about three years after this movie. See more »

30s fast paced 'Boys' Own' stuff!
15 March 2007 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

Alan Shearman was brilliant as the dashing Bullshot Crummond (with apologies to Bulldog Drummond) the all-round sportsman and know-it-all! The usual 'true Britisher' saving the earth from world dominating foreign types! The writing team was of three people Ron House, Diz White and Alan Shearman. I can't say that I have ever heard of the first two people, but Alan Shearman was in a TV comedy called 'Mog' with En Reitel, another very funny chap.

Ron Pember and Mel Smith are in supporting roles, clearly before Mel Smith went to the US to live and work; as did Alan Shearman, which is a pity really, as I thought that he had a lot to give in Britain. Perhaps the roles didn't come his way, so he decided to 'up and off' to the land of plenty!
