Trivia

This is the final film Eric Morecambe made before he died in 1984. Like Ernie, he was reportedly unhappy with the finished result, as they had originally believed they were going to make an actual film, not a videotaped TV Movie. See more »

Goofs

It is clearly stated that the action is set in 1946, but there are numerous contemporary (1980s) references, particularly from Eric Morecambe. See more »

Good
25 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As Morecambe and Wise films go as a comedy this isn't there best but still a good film all the same, as a thriller it's a tad lacking and I believe the comedy suffers to try and give it a thrillers edge. The acting isn't totally up-to scratch, by all the cast, the few gags that are in it are liberally spread, and there but if you blink you will miss them. You can tell parts were dubbed, and only true Morecambe and Wise fans will appreciate this film. Seeing that I am not heavily in to thrillers and haven't read any books of which this "send-up of some of the great thriller writers, including Edgar Wallace, Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie" is based on, so I may have missed some of the gags. Even though it's not the best of the films they made together but worth a watch!
