Trivia

Freddie Francis had made several films at the striking location of Oakley Court outside of London but it had only been externally. He was keen to film inside the building for a change and saw this project as an opportunity to do that. He commissioned writer Brian Comport to write a screenplay on any subject whatsoever with the sole stipulation that it be based in that location. See more »

Goofs

Sonny's "16mm home movie camera" is actually an 8mm home movie camera. You can tell by the size, shape, lens and model name. 16mm weren't as common for home movies as an 8mm camera was in 1970 so it would be difficult for an amateur filmmaker to obtain one without a lot of money. See more »

I Remember Having a Blast with this as a Teenager
23 April 2007 | by TahhhSee all my reviews

I saw this film in the theaters when I was a kid of 15 or 16 or so, and I remember that my friends and I just loved making one another laugh by quoting from it.

And if you're a kid of 15 or 16, I think you'll like this silly film for exactly the same reasons I did when I was that age.

However, it's a very, very dopey little movie, and while I think I'd like to see it again, just to see if there WAS anything to it, back then, I seriously doubt that there was anything substantial to it.

Still--there's a place for guilty pleasures on anybody's movie shelf, and I can think of far worse things you might include on your list of guilty pleasures.

It's junk-food, though--and I think even WE knew that, when our gang of noisy teenagers decided to go see it, all those many years ago...good for nyuk-nyuk-nyuk laughter and acting out scenes from it for hilarity later on...but nothing more.
