Fun In The Sun With Marty
17 June 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Picture the scene: Marty is on a holiday flight to Spain. Wearing sunglasses and with a white towel over his head, he thinks he looks cool. On his way to the john, he picks up a toy sub-machine gun a kid has dropped.

Before he can return it the plane hits an air pocket and Marty is propelled into the cockpit, where the crew take him for a would-be hijacker!

Later, our hero arrives in Spain to find the hotel he is booked into is not finished. Off he goes to a beach when he gets an unusual request from a topless British sunbather. A dog has made off with her bra so, ever the gallant rescuer, Marty agrees to ride a tandem back to the hotel with him seated behind her, holding sombreros over her breasts! All goes well until he spots an old friend and absent-mindedly doffs one of the hats!

This one-off silent comedy, shot on location, featured Marty Feldman doing what he was best at - visual comedy. His favourite support comedian John Junkin was at hand, cast as a smarmy hotel manager. It was one of Marty's last television projects; not long afterwards, he succumbed to the lure of Hollywood.
