Trivia

Whilst manhandling 'Lulu' the caravan, Timothy (Leslie Phillips) says "Left hand down a bit". This was one of his catchphrases as the character Sub-Lieutenant Phillips in the BBC radio comedy The Navy Lark, which would have been well-known to British audiences at the time. See more »

One of the funniest films for me, ever.
15 March 2003 | by btracyusaSee all my reviews

I saw this film in a drive-in theater in Massachusetts over 40 years ago. Lulu is the name of the camper and the movie lives very strong in my memory. If you like Monty Python, you'll love this. I think that they (Monty Python) might have gotten some ideas from this film.
