Flipping over Emma Peel
4 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"What the Butler Saw" has less Emma watching, with Steed attempting to ferret out a traitor among a Brigadier (Howard Marion Crawford, later seen in "The Living Dead" and "Stay Tuned"), a Vice Admiral (Humphrey Lestocq), and an RAF Captain, Georgie Miles (Dennis Quilley), notorious for his numerous female conquests. He naturally flips over Mrs. Peel (effortlessly stealing him away from the competition), while his butler (Hammer veteran Thorley Walters) spends his spare time running a school for butlers infiltrated by Steed (who jealously advises Emma not to do what he would). John Le Mesurier, previously seen in "Mandrake," stands out as the sinister Benson, with Ewan Hooper, dubbed in his memorable role as Dracula's servant priest in Hammer's 1968 "Dracula Has Risen from the Grave," using his own voice here as Sergeant Moran, whose climactic showdown with Mrs. Peel is a particularly well directed bit of action (and probably painful). Norman Scace had previously done "Lobster Quadrille," and Peter Hughes had done "The Medicine Men," while Kynaston Reeves went on to do "Legacy of Death."
