Interesting plot but poor execution
17 January 2019 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film was made by Lew Grade for the bottom half of British cinema bills and for showing on CBS tv,hence the 2 bland American leads.The plot is poorly developed.We know very early on who did it,but not why.The leads wear a multitude of clothes,every scene something different.The only pleasure is in seeing so many familiar faces amongst the cast.Shows you the lack of imagination at Rank,showing this with Carry on Henry.Far too long for a supporting feature.
