Trivia

This film received a general release in the UK on the Rank circuit (Odeons and Gaumonts), with Strongroom in support, commencing, as usual, with North West London on June 3rd 1962 before going on to North East London and South London in the following two weeks. The film performed so badly on the first two legs of the release that many cinemas played the B movie as the feature and it never made the third leg, being replaced in South London by a revival of A Taste Of Honey.

Below Par B (?) Movie
8 April 2021 | by alancmorton-37881See all my reviews

George Chakiris's character grated throughout, or maybe it was just George Chakiris.

His military behaviour at the outset was just too implausible to be tolerated as was the scene which set him on the run.

What followed is a series of unconvincing situations which become tiresome.

Only Alfred Lynch of the four main characters comes out with any real credit. Janette Scott although attractive is just too tom-boyish and too-good-to-be-true. Her final scene at the military base is just ridiculous.

Athene Seyler as Aunt Phoebe stole the show!

There are some noteworthy appearances; a very young Jeremy Lloyd (as an upper class twit), Jack Shepherd (Wycliffe) makes an uncredited appearance as a hotel clerk, Robert Raglan makes makes an uncredited appearance (he had a long stint in Dixon of Dock Green), Bernard Braden (60's TV icon),
