Goofs

When the famous Lutine bell is stolen, the officers at HQ describe it as weighing about a hundred pounds, and difficult, but not impossible, for a man to move around, yet in the scene at the finish line, we get a quick glimpse of Poppy Pennington (Tracy Reed), herself probably not much more than that weight, scooping it up effortlessly in the scramble.

You've got to be kidding!
12 January 2019 | by skoogs-3See all my reviews

This is one of those twerpy 'swinging 60's' films with cavalier photography, 'swinging' introductory and background music, to get us all in a 'fab' mood to insure us that the everything you are about to endure is not to be taken seriously. It's all the fault of the Beatles wonderful 'A Hard Days Night' that all the others are trying to catch up. However, this film couldn't catch a George Formby film on a bad day. And why-oh-why did it have to have the obligatory American actor in the lead role? To me this lowers the tone completely as we have many, many British actors who would be more than willing to make a complete fool of themselves.
