Patchy script Undermines good Cast
11 July 2012 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The only point of interest to me is the exterior locations.The opening scene takes place in Temple Fortune Parade.I remember watching the filming.The gang head south down the Finchley Road towards Golders Green.Next thing we know they are being pursued by the police along the A41 Watford Way.I would be interested to know the name and location of the cinema shown later in the film.The film itself is not very funny.A good cast let down by a rather unfunny script.the last 20 minutes in particular is extremely lame.Unfortunately Associated British Pathe did not turn out many good comedies in the sixties.There are lots of great actors,,Lowe,Le Mesurier and Mallinson who only have a brief time on screen alas.Early film of Maggie Smith.
