Two of the Military Intelligence operatives in the communications room are named as Green and Hills, a nod to the writers Sidney Green and Richard Hills. Sid and Dick are also the duo during Eric's espresso bar singing scene. See more »
Eric's Scarlet uniform at the reception has no rank on the shoulders, despite him supposedly being a major. Mere Epaulettes do not denote any rank. See more »
I love Morecambe and Wise so I enjoyed this film. They are on top form as bumbling British agents who are trying to stop the bad guys who are "on their side" from doing their bad deeds. There are some really funny scenes and some great lines ("waiter there's a dead man in this soup") and a reasonable cast. Yet though this film is very much enjoyable, it is not as good as their next film "That Riviera Touch", because it begins to get a bit unfunny at times. Nevertheless it's worth watching just for the fantastic opera scene at the end of the film which recalls Danny Kaye's equally hilarious opera performance at the end of his film "Wonder Man". It is also interesting to see how young Morecambe and Wise were when they made the film. Enjoy! 8/10
