Reg Varney blew me away!
30 January 2018 | by jakeonstageSee all my reviews

I cannot believe I have never come across the British film before. Reg Varney was excellent in the leading role. His characterization of the Comedy Host of the Holiday Camp was played to perfection It's a sad story but full of 1970-s colour, and I don't just mean the caravan curtains. Jane Seymour makes her pre-Live and Let Die appearance in a bit part and gorgeous David Lincoln (Family at War) is excellently cast. I always wonder what happened to him. Complete with the serenely beautiful Diana Coupland this film is a must see for all true Britflick fans.
