Goofs

When Frankie is in the snake house and a snake is at his face (around 1 hour 18 minutes in) a hand can be seen (on the left hand side of the screen) holding the snake. This is more visible on the Full Frame 4.3 as filmed version which is one of the special features on the U.K. DVD. See more »

Frankie Howard YES, this film NO.
12 April 2018 | by g-hbeSee all my reviews

We were stuck for something to watch last night and we chose this 'hilarious comedy' to pass a couple of hours. We usually delight in watching bad films, but this one took us to our limits really. Frankie Howerd can be very funny left to his own devices, but here he is stuck with a script with weak jokes and a very thin story. Ray Milland has never been our cup of tea, but here he puts on a good show, seemingly resigned to the fact that his career was over anyway. Several notches less entertaining than 'Up Pompei!', it ground its way through our evening and we were quite relieved when it finished.
