Manny wins two plane tickets to Rome. Naturally, Patrick, his best friend, assumes he will be going with him, and looks forward to visiting the Vatican. But Manny invites 'Rabbi Levy' ( the late Cyril Shaps ) instead. Patrick is devastated. Then the Rabbi cannot go and Patrick has to take his place. Manny is not a good air traveller, and Patrick fancies the stewardess ( Dilys Watling ). In Rome, the tailors become separated. Manny winds up on the Pope's balcony!
This amusing episode later provided story material for the 1973 film version, which seems to have fallen off the radar. As far as I can tell, it received a solitary television showing on I.T.V. in 1978. Steve Plytas played a Swiss guard in both versions.
Funniest moment - Patrick telling Manny how to overcome air flight sickness, only to be then sick himself!
