Trivia

The 'Play Database' describes this movie's source 'Bullshot Crummond' play as a "parody of low-budget 30s detective movies" whilst 'TV Trope' says that it is a parody of "1930s British heroes like 'Bulldog Drummond' and 'Biggles'". Of the latter, a new version, Biggles: Adventures in Time (1986), would be made and released about three years after this movie. See more »

Excellent!
11 October 2006 | by bertwapSee all my reviews

This film was shown on U.K. television way back in the late 1980's or early 1990's in the early hour's of the morning.I do not know why? because it is one of the best British comedy film's ever made!.Only grave robber's,vampire's and insomniac's like myself got a chance to see this fine British gem.It has a wealth of top notch comedy and acting talent.Talent from Alan Shearman,Diz White,Ron House,Frances Tomelty,Michael Aldridge,Billy Connolly,Mel Smith to long gone dear old Ted Malt.This film deserves better treatment from the British media executive's and should be given more credit and than what it as ever had.A fine Film from a fine company Handmade Films and thank you always's to George Harrison .
