Storyline

David Jason's most famous film appearance of the 1970's was opposite Graham Chapman in 'The Odd Job' but five years earlier he played the lead role in this very low budget comedy. His character is a daydreamer but he manages to get caught up in an adventure involving the hugely underated Imogen Hassall. There is even an appearance from a pre Darth Vader Dave Prowse although his character closer resembles the one he played in 'Callan'. Written by <timbishopgb@excite.com>

Imogen Hassall died in 1980. The film is a typical account of early 70's British 'comedy' in the same genre or style as Rentadick (Richard Beckinsale) and Tiffany Jones (Ray Brooks). I enjoy these films foremost because of the era they were made in, i.e. not the plot/acting abilities or other normal qualities sought after in a film.The surrounding scenery and buildings/cars act as a filmed portrait of 'how Britain looked then'-quite a lot more uncluttered and somewhat simpler way of life. I also enjoy seeing well known household names in the beginnings of their careers.To me these odd movies are equally as watchable, if not more so that the popular hit movies/t.v series which will be repeated for ever more. Another odd film like these is The Strange Case of the End of Civilisation as we know it (John Cleese/Arthur Lowe). What these offbeat films do is show the viewer a somewhat different side to an actor that you may think you already know well, from their well-known creations.
