Fast climbing Arthur Tate rose to his fame, wealth and respectability quickly from a beginning as a naive constable His rise was also due to 3 women: dressmaker Violet Lawson, Lily, the Baroness von Lukenberg, and movie producer Marigold Marado, His rise was also due to Mrs. Tate, who always seemed to have an extra bit of information which would make her suggest to the people that her son Arthur be provided a position where he could do more good.

Aspires to be appalling but falls short of even that. It is never as good as appalling at any time.Whose idea was it that Booth should be given a starring role?
James Booth I used to see in earlier UK movies and he was never able to play a likable character, even when attempting the lovable rogue as in Zulu. Another really bad idea was using US actresses like Shirley Jones and Stella Stevens to appeal to an American audience. Then some fool added monster spiders-yes monster spiders!! This must tell you something about the utter vacuity of ideas on display here. Whoever put up the money for this crap must have been on something mind-bending at the time (well it was the sixties) Give this turkey a miss!!
