I loved this production - a true story of a true eccentric British hero. From the beginning we have a character who comes round in hospital after being blown up by a German shell and first asks about his horse. He berates another soldier in the ward, tells him to pull himself together and get his haircut. He then attempts to escape disguised as a nurse. During the German invasion of France he is so annoyed that the British are abandoning the French that he attempts to steal a plane to fly to France. He then becomes an agent in Vichy France after being parachuted in. After the war he fights a long battle against the legal profession who he considers to have swindled his sister. A magnificent production.
