Storyline

Able Seaman Dick Deadeye is charged by Queen Victoria to find the stolen Ultimate Secret. His ugliness means that his life has always been lonely but a buxom barmaid takes a shine to him. Together, they battle pirates and an evil magician before discovering that the Ultimate Secret is nothing but LOVE! Using songs based on the original works of Gilbert and Sullivan (but updated with modern lyrics), this film was created to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the first collaboration of the composers of the Savoy Operas.

Fantastic film
23 April 2004 | by (San Jose, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favorite films, who can not love the schameleon.

I would describe the music style similar to 70's versions of Lloyd-weber musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, basically it is G&S with a great 70's wah wah guitar. Magical!

for the record it was available on video in the USA, I have a copy, there is also an accompanying book

Highlights are the linda lewis solo, it is enjoyable for adults and children alike and can be watched time and time again. The story follows the ultimate secret (which unlike government secrets) nobody knows. The story drags a little at the end but to thread a story across so make GS productions is amazing in itself
